CSDS SIGNS MOU WITH LEX MUNDUS & CENCLA
CSDS has signed an MOU with the Accra-based law firm, Lex Mundus & Cencla, National Security Lawyers, to promote awareness about Advanced Security Technologies, Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), and Cyber Law & Policies in West Africa.
Fortunately, this strategic partnership is occurring at a time when international usage and interest in the protection and surveillance of public and cyber space is growing in response to rising crime and terrorism.
The on-going research being undertaken by CSDS and its partners seek to overcome the inadequacies of current technologies and meet the increased demand for improvements in target monitoring, following the immense costs of successful terrorist attacks. A solution may be found in advanced surveillance systems employing computer monitoring of video feeds, delivering the alerts to human responders for triage. Indeed such systems may assist in maintaining the high level of vigilance required over many years to detect the rare events associated with terrorism – a well designed computer system is never caught off guard.
CSDS surveillance research is aimed at developing advanced security solutions based on computer vision and pattern recognition technologies and advanced embedded systems.
