Are you ready to respond to a cyberattack? They are likely to happen and your response plan will have direct bearing on your ability to mitigate such attacks, and on your cybersecurity posture as a whole.
Benefits gained from a cloud-based solution are considerable compared with traditional implementations methods. Not only are more state and federal public safety agencies moving the cloud, but cloud-based solutions also are being leveraged by mission-critical entities such as the
Prior to the late 1960s, emergency medical service (EMS) in the United States didn’t exist—at least not in the manner that it is provided today. Ambulances were used to transport patients to hospitals or other healthcare facilities—and not much else. In 1960, only six states had standard education programs for rescue personnel—paramedics and emergency medical technicians didn’t come into being until the early 1970s—and only four states regulated ambulance-design specifications. By 1965, the vast majority of emergency medical services from coast to coast largely were unregulated.
Next Generation 911 (NG911) systems represent a quantum leap forward for the public-safety community and the citizens that it serves. Internet Protocol (IP)-based and broadband-enabled, such systems are capable of considerably more than legacy 911 systems—which is why many emergency communications centers (ECCs) from coast to coast are clamoring to implement them.
The TECB is transitioning to a statewide emergency services Internet Protocol (IP) network (ESInet) that will provide the transport architecture necessary to deliver 911 calls to Next Generation 911 (NG911)-compliant ECCs. NG911 is an advanced broadband communications system that enables the transmission of real-time text, images and video, in addition to voice, to help improve emergency response.
In this on-demand webinar from Mission Critical Partners' virtual Conference for Advancing Public Safety hosted in June, hear from members of the microwave vendor community as they share their thoughts on the future of public safety microwave systems in light of the FCC’s recent 6 GHz ruling.
A lot can go wrong with public safety communications networks from a cybersecurity perspective.
Discussion topics include:
Most public safety organizations are unaware of every network, system, component and device used by their agency, and most do not maintain up-to-date inventories of their network and system infrastructure. MCP can maintain applications and keep networks secure, stable and running efficiently.
