Denial of Service attacks are popular techniques for cyber-thugs to wreak havoc on our 9-1-1 systems. Telephony Denial of Service (TDoS) can impact the ability for our PSAPs to receive 9-1-1 calls from our citizens or impair the use of Public Safety administrative lines. Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks can shut down a PSAP’s data communications, making it impossible to retrieve and share information.

Whether a PSAP has E9-1-1 or NG9-1-1 capabilities, both of these attacks affect our emergency response. Our Public Safety infrastructure must have enough resilience to prepare for these types of attacks.

This webinar will address:

  • The two types of TDoS attacks seen by Public Safety systems
  • How DDoS attacks can interrupt Public Safety data communications
  • How to address a DDoS attack
  • How to address a TDoS attack
  • The impact of NG9-1-1 on TDoS and DDoS
