It is designed to:
o Coordinate on-going European standardisation activities concerning security topics which are being handled within various vertical sectors (e.g. construction, transport, ICT, energy, healthcare, food...)
o Map security standards to visualize overlap and the need for collaboration;
o Where no suitable standards exist, to define best ways to provide them in the near future by prioritization and by providing a roadmap, and make recommendations to the CEN and CENELEC BTs accordingly;
o Organise the CEN and CENELEC response to European legislation and Europe general strategy in the security sector;
Euralarm is part of this forum which is currently driven by CEN TC391 Societal and Citizens security. It will be integrated in a new JIS Action 16.
