Cybersecurity - Launched March 1, 2021
Co-Chair - Tom Breen, Seculore
Co-Chair - Al Brisard, Exacom
Background: Emergency communications systems remain susceptible to cyber-based attacks and require the implementation of effective cybersecurity measures to ensure the effective operations of these systems and, ultimately, the safety and security of first responders and the public. The public safety industry, including the FCC, standards bodies, and other organizations have many initiatives in this area.
The initial charge of the Cybersecurity Working Group is to identify the relevant cybersecurity initiatives in the industry and summarize these efforts and content for the iCERT website. This Working Group will act as iCERT liaison group to these other organizations. From time to time this WG may also make recommendations to iCERT’s Policy Committee on what future work items this Working Group should undertake to promote effective cybersecurity policies. This initial summary should be provided to the Policy Committee and available by late summer 2021.
