CISA’s Emergency Communications Unit Convenes Stakeholders for 911 Summit

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s Emergency Communications Division has concluded the Cyber Resilient 911 program‘s second regional symposium in the southeast United States.

Statewide interoperability coordinators, 911 administrators and cyber officials from each state and territory in the region participated, CISA said Thursday.

In partnership with the Federal Communications Commission, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the National Telecommunications & Information Administration, CISA sought to interact with stakeholders to pin down the CR911 program’s cyber priorities.

Discussion topics included the state of the 911 ecosystem’s cyber resilience and best practices in cyberattack response. According to CISA, speakers shared resources to strengthen the cybersecurity posture of Emergency Communication Centers.

Billy Bob Brown, CISA ECD’s executive assistant director, said feedback from state and local communities improve CISA’s understanding of how to build a secure and resilient 911 system.

Additional symposiums in the central and west U.S. regions are planned for the spring.
