Preparing ECC Leadership for Cyber Attacks
When a crisis occurs, people look to leadership to know what to do. A cybersecurity breach is no different. Having the proper foundation of cybersecurity training, policies, and plans can make all the difference when a hacker strikes. If an ECC is properly prepared, an attack which may have escalated to crippling ransomware, could be a minor cyber-incident with no down time. Attend this session to learn which cyber defense and incident response strategies two 9-1-1 cybersecurity experts recommend for public safety. Dive into the latest cyber attacks statistics and discover the impact leadership can have on ECC cybersecurity.

NG911 - It Takes a Village:
10:15 AM - 11:30 AM
The migration to Next Generation 911 is a complex undertaking involving a multitude of technology partners who must work in harmony to maximize the benefits of this endeavor. This iCERT based panel of industry partners will focus on the complexity of NG911 components and the need for coordination of the various elements of a successful NG911 implementation.

Protecting NG911 from Cybersecurity Threats and Hacker Attacks:
11:45 AM - 1:00 PM
As 911 rolls out more enhanced services – typically as they access or are accessed by IP-based networks – the ability to be compromised increases. Learn about the most critical threats to NG911 systems including ransomware, cryptojacking, Advanced Persistent Threats, distributed denial of service (DDoS), telephony denial of service (TDoS), where attack traffic is sent to the target in an unprecedented scale of terabits, jamming the network and overwhelming the 911 applications, firewall and session border controller. Discuss other potential attacks such as botnets, malware propagation, unauthorized connections and even the human element of insider threats. Examine how to harden the PSAP environment, keep out hackers, reduce cyber threats and protect emergency communications, as well as exploring the latest hardware and analytics breakthroughs to keep dispatchers, first responders and citizens safe.

Facing The 7 Cybersecurity Challenges of NG9-1-1
Our Public Safety infrastructure is evolving. PSAPs are preparing to receive multimedia and data from our citizens in need of help, and our First Responders are beginning to use FirstNet and other Public Safety Broadband networks. As our cities become smarter and we deploy Internet of Things devices both inside and outside our centers, we become ever more interconnected to IP-based networks. These advances bring great benefits to all parties: citizens, 911 telecommunicators, dispatchers and first responders. However, they also bring new and different vulnerabilities for which public safety will need to be prepared. In this session, we will discuss the seven cybersecurity challenges that our 9-1-1 centers face with this transition, how to address them, and what questions you should be asking your vendors.

Tuesday, September 1st: 3:25PM – 4:25PM in room Galleon II

Preparing Public Safety for Cyber Incident Response
Many Public Safety Agencies around the country have directly experienced the helpless feeling of seeing their Emergency Call Centers crippled by a cyber-attack. Unfortunately, we are constantly playing defense, and attacks in our industry have doubled year after year. Keeping your critical services going while fighting ransomware or other malicious viruses, is a daunting task. Having a Cyber Incident Response Plan is necessary to address the inevitable scenario in which a hacker gets past your cyber defenses. Your Agency likely has disaster recovery contingencies for tornadoes, fires, hurricanes and “cut” telephone lines. A cyber incident can be an equally severe disaster that should be treated with no less priority.

Preparing ECC Leadership for Cyber Attacks:
1:00 PM - 1:50 PM

When a crisis occurs, people look to leadership to know what to do. A cybersecurity breach is no different. Having the proper foundation of cybersecurity training, policies, and plans can make all the difference when a hacker strikes. If an Emergency Communications Center is properly prepared, an attack which may have escalated to crippling ransomware, could be a minor cyber-incident with no down time. Attend this session to learn which cyber defense and incident response strategies 9-1-1 cybersecurity experts recommend for public safety. Dive into the latest cyber attacks statistics and discover the impact leadership can have on ECC cybersecurity.

Fixing the Top 5 Public Safety Cyber Vulnerabilities:
2:00PM - 2:50PM

News reports are full of stories in which hackers have attacked public safety agencies – such as 9-1-1 Centers, Police Departments, Sheriff Offices, Fire Departments and others. They have caused serious disruption to our ability to respond to a 9-1-1 caller’s plea for help. Based upon the cybersecurity monitoring of hundreds of public safety networks, SecuLore has amassed many examples of how hackers can and are attacking 9-1-1. Attend this session to discover the top 5 public safety cyber vulnerabilities and how to protect yourselves from the mischief they bring.
