The Winner 2019

Júlíus Sigurjónsson and Einar Karl Kristjánsson

Joint project of the Icelandic Police & the National University Hospital of Iceland

The Reykjavik Metropolitan Police and the National University Hospital had two separate digital asset management systems to store sensitive digital evidence files. Both teams wanted to share this information more efficiently and improve their security.

To achieve this, the teams developed specific rules and requests to share only relevant images. In such a way, the National University Hospital can request pictures and get access faster, after approval has been given by the police. The process also works the other way around.
