Kloza, Dariusz (Darek); Stine Bergersen; Rocco Bellanova; & Ida Rødningen (2016) Monitoring report on emerging ethical challenges and current societal debates (Deliverable D2.2), LASIE Deliverables, 2. Rome: EU FP7 LASIE Project.

​​​​​​The purpose of this deliverable is to report to the LASIE consortium on any changes on the technological, regulatory and societal levels that might be of importance in the LASI​E prototype and its further development. The work reported in this deliverable was done under WP2, as part of the task T2.2 (Privacy Monitoring). The s​​tructure contains four main sections, the first two reporting on the technological landscape and change, and the two next sections focus on legislative and societal change, respectively. Finally, we provide recommendations drawn from the above analysis, and formulates advice on how to take into consideration the societal issues raised by LASIE (data protection, ethics, privacy and so on). The deliverable ultimately asks what, if anything, has changed on any of these levels and in what way this is relevant to the LASIE project?​

The deliverable finally lists seven broad recommendations consistent with the foregoing analysis. These are: 

  1. The LASIE consortium takes into consideration the three ‘changing’ factors – the society, technology and regulation – into its work. 
  2. The LASIE consortium ensures the LASIE prototype is compatible with the new European personal data protection framework. 
  3. The LASIE consortium ensures the LASIE prototype adheres to national security standards developed under the new Directive on security of network and information systems (NIS). 
  4. The LASIE consortium ensures the LASIE prototype is able to demonstrate the logics that lead to an arrest and/or detention of an accused person as well the evidence available. 
  5. The LASIE consortium ensures the LASIE prototype handles digital evidence in accordance with the principles of authenticity, completeness, reliability, believability and proportionality. 
  6. The LASIE consortium continuously monitors the developments in the area of digital evidence. 
  7. ​The LASIE consortium ensures the LASIE prototype is continuously assessed against a broad range of societal values, including not only ethical notions (privacy, data protection, ethics of surveillance), but also acceptance of a given society in which the LASIE prototype would be deployed.
