CHHS Cyber Expert Discusses Body Cameras with Baltimore City Mayor's Working Group

Markus Rauschecker '06Markus Rauschecker ‘06, a senior law and policy analyst at the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security, delivered a briefing at Maryland Carey Law on cybersecurity issues to the Baltimore City Mayor’s Working Group on the Use and Implementation of Body Worn Cameras,  Tuesday, December 9, 2014.

Rauschecker identified data storage as the most important cybersecurity issue to address, noting that body cameras can generate large amounts of video footage that must be stored in a secure location with regulated access. He also pointed out that policies must be developed to protect the integrity of video content, ensuring proper chain-of-custody, audit trails of access or editing by personnel, and retention.

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake '95 formed the working group in October to explore the potential implementation of body cameras for officers in the Baltimore Police Department. The group, co-chaired by James Benjamin '01, of Pessin & Katz, P.A., includes law enforcement officials, legal representatives, information technology specialists, community members and clergy.

Rauschecker is also an adjunct professor at Maryland Carey Law who co-teaches its course in the Law and Policy of Cybersecurity.
