TODAY: Don’t Miss Solacom’s Cybersecurity Fundamentals for PSAPs at APCO Canada 2018 Conference

Informative session focuses on cyberattack prevention and mitigation for public safety answering points

CHICAGO, Ill., November 6, 2018 — Get a better understanding of the fundamentals of cybersecurity that affect public safety answering points (PSAPs) by attending today’s session presented by Solacom at APCO Canada 2018.

Cybersecurity 101: What Every PSAP Needs to Know is a can’t-miss session at the APCO Canada Conference & Tradeshow 2018 taking place at Le Centre Sheraton in Montreal, Quebec, today. Gilles Ferland, Solacom’s vice president of product development, will gear his talk to PSAP decision-makers who want to increase their knowledge about potential threats so they can better protect their PSAPs.

“Many people have heard the reports in the news about cyberattacks at PSAPs and they know they need to prepare, but they don’t know what kind of threats are out there and how to develop an effective protection strategy,” says Ferland. “This session will give PSAPs the essential information they need for their operations planning.”

The session looks at the types of attacks that may affect PSAPs and the steps PSAPs can take immediately to protect emergency call handling operations. Like Ferland’s well-attended cybersecurity panel at APCO 2018 in Las Vegas this summer, the one-hour session will feature plenty of time for audience questions and discussion.
