Staying Protected Against Cyberattacks: Priority Services for Essential Workforce and Critical Infrastructure (WasteExpo 2021)

July 22, 2021

A cyberattack on the nation’s critical infrastructure, whether successful or not, is likely to cause a significant overload on communications infrastructure and diminish private sector efforts along with coordination of federal, state, local, tribal and territorial government response. When the target of attack is the communications infrastructure itself, the resulting impacts impede communications operability and interoperability amongst emergency responders. Access to data, video and information services with priority and preemption is essential to effective and coordinated activities to ensure the safety of citizens. And what about the data that is stored on end-of-life devices? Hardware hacking has become yet another security breach risk for individuals, companies and government agencies. Learn about the particular risks and challenges and the priority services for essential workforce and critical infrastructure that can help enhance national security and the ability of emergency responders to seamlessly exchange information to perform mission essential national critical functions.
