Protecting NextGen 911 Systems

This event qualifies for 1 CPEs


Cyber criminals are increasingly targeting emergency response networks throughout the United States. The risk to Next Generation (NextGen) 911 systems posed by advanced malware and denial-of-service (DoS) attacks highlight the critical need for local governments to secure emergency response networks.


This complimentary webinar will discuss how Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) in 911 networks continue to evolve to an IP-based architecture for NextGen 911 to provide more benefits and safety for citizens, especially those with disabilities. The ability to accept information in text, images or video - in addition to voice - at a PSAP creates an expanding cyber-attack surface. These new attack vendors were not previously a concern with standard voice-based telephone networks.


Join Fortinet and Carahsoft to learn about:

  • Top security concerns around PSAPs and NextGen911
  • The importance of protecting networks, assets, databases and services involved with the processing, storage, and transport of data in NextGen 911 systems
  • How the Fortinet Security Fabric can help governments mitigate the risks of cyberattacks and system breaches
