Anatomy of a Public Safety Ransomware Attack — Get a detailed look into what actually happens before, during and after a ransomware attack. Learn about common attack vectors used by cyber criminals and other threat actors, and best practices for preventing future attacks.         

What To Expect During Cyber Incident Response — Find out what to expect during an incident response engagement. We’ll discuss proactive steps that can be taken prior to an incident occurring, how to coordinate with stakeholders and law enforcement in order to get ahead of any potential cyber threats, and how best to mitigate damage should an incident occur.   

Cybersecurity 101: Why Should Public Safety Care? — In this course, we’ll provide an introduction to essential cybersecurity basics, including a topical discussion of cyber threats and the fundamentals of risk management from a public safety perspective. We’ll also discuss what steps you can take to create and nurture a cybersecurity mindset within your agency.  

How to Get Your Cybersecurity Program Covered for Free — Congress established the nearly $1 billion State and Local Cybersecurity Grant Program (SLCGP) in 2021 to help states, local governments, rural areas and territories address cybersecurity risks and cybersecurity threats to information systems. Learn how your agency can tap into these grants to fund your cybersecurity initiatives in 2023.

Ransomware: A Survival Guide for Public Safety — In this session, we’ll demonstrate how attackers enter and move within a public safety network, and share practical steps you can take to protect your most valuable information. Learn about the motives and methods of ransomware developers versus operators, the rise of ransomware-as-a-service, and the modus operandi of underground cybercrime markets.  

Cyber Threats Panel: A Public Safety Perspective — Hear from a panel of public safety agency leaders on how they are leveraging membership in the Public Safety Threat Alliance (PSTA), an information sharing and analysis organization (ISAO) established by Motorola Solutions to combat increasingly complex and disruptive cyber threats to their agencies and the constituents they serve. 

Introduction to VESTA 9-1-1 Cyber Threat Detection & Response — Protecting Emergency Call Handling (ECH) systems from cyber threats is more critical than ever. As attacks against 9-1-1 and adjacent systems grow, agencies face a variety of operational challenges and potential impacts. In this presentation, we’ll share insights into the top cyber threats impacting ECH and what you can do to prevent and respond to them.  

Introduction to PSAP Cyber Threat Detection and Response — This session will cover the importance of having an effective cyber threat detection system in place to detect malicious attacks on public safety answering point (PSAP) networks as quickly as possible. Additionally, we’ll share insights into the top cyber threats impacting PremierOne and Flex CAD and how agencies can protect and defend against them.
