FirstNet Gets 40 Responses to Cyber Appendix

The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) has received 40 submissions from industry and states in response to a draft appendix that it released earlier this month (TRDaily, Oct. 5) to help inform its preparation of cybersecurity portions of its final request for proposals (RFP), according to FirstNet spokesman Ryan Oremland. The deadline to submit comments was yesterday. FirstNet is not releasing the submissions. But a submission provided to TRDaily by the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials-International said, among other things, that “FirstNet should provide more details on how its cybersecurity strategy will involve and account for Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs).”
