"This is a first for iCERT, and possibly for the public safety technology provider industry. Nothing quite like this has occurred before," noted Kim Robert Scovill, Executive Director. "Seattle is an epicenter for technology, but, frankly, has not been leveraged by public safety to the extent it deserves. AWS's impact on public safety through "cloud" based services and infrastructure cannot be over-emphasized as to its historic consequences.

AWS granting access to its people, resources, and expertise for iCERT attendees will be a signature moment for our Association that we believe will jump-start significant organic and marketplace growth, and new business and partnership opportunities for our members, attendees, and friends," he added.
