APCO Announces Webinar: TDM Transition to Ethernet for Public Safety With Cybersecurity in Mind

The Webinar will be held on Wednesday, February 22, 2017, from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET. The communities supported by public safety are technology-savvy and pushing public safety agencies to be more connected to the world, but transitioning from a legacy TDM networks to ethernet can make agencies more vulnerable to cybersecurity attacks. IPKeys will present the benefits of an ethernet network and some steps to ease the migration. They will also share the cybersecurity measures needed to protect public safety’s LMR & LTE network and to mitigate the risk for NG9-1-1 networks connecting to ESINet. Drawing from its deep knowledge and experience with complex Department of Defense cybersecurity programs, IPKeys will offer suggestions to help manage cybersecurity risks during and after a transition to an ethernet system.
