Everyone uses a computer, so everyone needs cybersecurity training. As the industry moves to NG9-1-1 and mobile broadband, cybersecurity becomes even more vital to the day-to-day operations of our Emergency Communications Centers (ECCs). When a cyberattack is launched, reaction time is critical to recovery. Do you know the warning signs and best actions to take if your computer is impacted? This session will expand your knowledge about the evolving cyber threats facing our nation's ECCs and how, as individuals, we can all help reduce the threat by improving our daily routines related to cyber behavior. In this session we will:
Explore ECC cyber attack statistics and a few case studies.
Review the basics, i.e. ransomware, malware, virus, trojan, spyware, adware, and worm are some of the terms you’ve heard regarding attempts to damage or destroy a public safety network or system.
Train you on what Telecommunicators can do to improve ECC cybersecurity.
