SecuLore Solutions & Phishgoggles Security Awareness Service Announce Agreement

SecuLore Solutions and Phishgoggles Security Awareness Service announce a sales partnership to provide a multilayered approach to cybersecurity services for 9-1-1. This agreement marries SecuLore’s industry-leading technology and public safety expertise with Phishgoggles’ comprehensive phishing and educational service to protect our crucial public safety infrastructure. The new partners will be debuting how their services work together at APCO 2019 on August 13th.

SecuLore’s services and proprietary hardware have helped protect and remediate public safety networks across 13 states. Phishgoggles’ comprehensive phishing simulation and security awareness services have proven effective at reducing employees’ susceptibility to online cyber threats. Together, the two companies will help protect the emergency services that protect us.

This partnership aims to increase awareness of online scams, provide public safety with key cyber defense techniques, and teach them what to do when an attack does occur. Phishgoggles’ year-round micro-learning model makes security awareness embedded, instinctual and second nature. This, paired with SecuLore’s cybersecurity monitoring (Paladin™), vulnerability assessments (CyberBenchmarks™), and on-site training, strengthens the cyber protections of our nation’s most important number: 9-1-1.

Over the past two years, SecuLore has recorded 375 publicly reported cyberattacks impacting 9-1-1 and local governments. The frequency and severity of these attacks have been steadily increasing every month for the past 3 years, and protecting public safety has never been more important.

“We’ve watched public safety struggle with being targeted by cyber criminals, and recovery is always much more difficult and costly than prevention,” said SecuLore President & CEO, Tim Lorello. “We need all public safety personnel to be on-guard and cyber-trained. Phishgoggles Security Awareness Service makes ongoing training for 9-1-1 personnel easy and accessible.”

“We felt SecuLore had an incredible technology and training solution focused on critical public safety organizations,” said Phishgoggles CEO Michael Cohn. “We’re pleased they added Phishgoggles to that solution to maintain the important human element of continuous awareness as an ongoing defense against ransomware and other threats. The more public safety professionals trained to be ‘long-term security-aware’ to identify and avoid sophisticated malicious emails, texts, social media links, fraudulent websites and other cyber dangers, the more we can reduce the risk of cyberattacks interfering with the public safety mission.”

SecuLore Solutions will be exhibiting at booth #504 at APCO International’s 2019 Conference in the Baltimore Convention Center on August 12th and 13th, where they will demo their Paladin Overwatch™ cybersecurity monitoring service. Phishgoggles will be joining the booth on Tuesday, August 13th to demonstrate how its security awareness training can work with SecuLore’s cybersecurity services to help protect public safety from cyber attacks. To further assist the cyber-education of 9-1-1, SecuLore’s CEO, CTO, and Chief Engineer are hosting an educational session at APCO 2019 titled, “How Hackers Infiltrate Our Public Safety Infrastructure.” This session will take place August 12th at 4:30PM.
