Convergent Software Limited is launching its ISO 28560-2 Planning Support Service to help libraries gain a better understanding of how this important standard can improve library operations.

The service is a combination of three component features:

A key point of the Consulting Service is that, in addition to simply addressing data encoding issues, it will cover key privacy and security issues that are coming to the fore with the following developments:

Paul Chartier, Managing Director of Convergent Software Limited, says "I have just returned from two days of intense discussions on the European RFID privacy standards, involving the European Commission, standards makers, technology vendors and end user organisations.

There were no end users from the library community. As co-Project Editor of ISO 28560-2 and Project Editor of the European Standard on RFID Privacy Impact Assessment, Convergent Software is in a unique position to offer this service. The ISO 28560-2 Planning Support Service will enable libraries to receive ongoing information so that they can implement a continual improvement programme combining better functionality while addressing emerging privacy and security aspects. It seems sensible to offer libraries a winwin opportunity."
