New Global Mobile Phone Security Application

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Sheffield Hallam University and the UN Migration Agency (IOM) have launched a mobile phone app designed to enhance the safety and security of IOM staff, while deployed in the world’s most challenging and dangerous environments.

The University's Centre of Excellence in Terrorism, Resilience and Organised Crime Research (CENTRIC), which is member of EOS, has worked with IOM to develop the security-focused situational awareness dashboard and app.

The project, called SCAAN (Security Communications and Analysis Network), is designed to enhance the safety and security of IOM's field staff, while keeping them up to date during crises and emergencies. The SCAAN app and dashboard uses GPS, direct messaging, calls and reporting features to provide urgent assistance to IOM field staff working in inhospitable and dangerous parts of the world.
