The CRISP Final Conference was held on March 16th in Brussels, Belgium. The FP7-funded project CRISP - Evaluation and Certification Schemes for Security Products - aimed to develop a novel evaluation and certification methodology for security systems that integrates technical, social and legal dimensions as assessment criteria.
The conference presented the project findings and the consortium of project partners’ work over the past three years. The CRISP project partners main output is the 'STEFi' model: the acronym standing for Security, Trust, Efficiency and Freedom infringement. The final version of the CEN Workshop Agreement on the STEFi model is now available.
Presentations were given outlining the concept for the STEFi model, for installed video systems, as well as some of the challenges going forward should a follow-up project develop. Such a project would be required to start a pilot scheme and evaluate the STEFi model practically before rolling out further. A possible completion date for the potential project would be 2026.
Presentations were given by Ying Ying Lau (Project Manager) Ronald Boon (Coordinator) as well as CRISP advisory members, Glen Dale of Euralarm (CRISP Advisory member) and Dr Aikaterina Poustourli from The European Commission, DG Migration and Home Affairs. A lively discussion then followed between the conference audience and a panel of CRISP Partners and Advisory members.

A year later, the Commission claims to have delivered on all security related priorities set out by President Juncker. .
