Ransomware is a $2B business – cybercrime is rising at an alarming rate – new forms of cyber attacks like cryptojacking are emerging, and all of these are targeted at our public safety agencies. In this on demand webinar, we discuss the specific types of steps you can take to protect your PSAP, Dispatch Center or police/fire/EMS department.

Watch this on demand webinar to learn about:

    1. Critical policies to implement: hygiene training, backups, incident response preparation to name a few
    2. Preparing your data network: segmentation, locking down and monitoring your network, which tools are recommended and which to avoid
    3. Good practices to follow: network inventory, threat prioritization, and regular vulnerability assessments
    4. Recommendations from the FCC’s Task Force on Optimal PSAP Architecture (TFOPA) that are intended to keep our Public Safety agencies cyber-safe

We address these topics through the use of real-world cases, showing what has been done well and what has sometimes gone horribly wrong – learn the lessons that only actual examples can teach.
