ISO/TR 22312:2011 Societal security - Technological capabilities
This Technical Report documents the knowledge accumulated in the six-month study period conducted by an ad-hoc group in ISO/TC 223 which examined the different existing available technologies which would be relevant to standardize within the field of societal security. It identifies what key technical domains that are important for the work of TC 223 and recommends how to deal with them.
This work was initiated in order to investigate the technical area of societal security and also identify technologies that other more suitable committees should standardize.
Danny Akerman (Israel), the project leader responsible for writing ISO/TR 22312, explaines:
"The need for including the development of technically oriented International Standards in the field of societal security in the scope of ISO/TC 223 was voiced and advocated by Israel from the stage when the first draft of the committee's business plan was prepared. The logic was that the deliverables of ISO/TC 223 should give a complete solution for security and equipment and, therefore, security systems are a vital piece of the equation.
Based on this, ISO/TC 223 decided to form group to conduct a six-month study in which the key societal security technological domains would be identified and recommendations made to the TC on how to deal with them."
