Public Safety Threat Alliance will serve as the cybersecurity services hub for world-class information sharing and threat intelligence collaboration for the global public safety community.
Motorola Solutions today announced a cyber threat information sharing and analysis organization (ISAO) for public safety. The Public Safety Threat Alliance, a Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)-recognized ISAO, is open to all public safety agencies. CISA, which falls under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, serves as the National Coordinator for Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience on this critical initiative.
ISAOs are groups focused on sharing information related to cybersecurity risks and incidents with membership drawing from the public and private sectors. Public Safety Threat Alliance members can share and analyze data from multiple sources to proactively contribute to a more robust cybersecurity posture for the public safety community, constituents, and other stakeholders — including government agencies and businesses.
According to a Motorola Solutions press release:
“The establishment of the Public Safety Threat Alliance fills a critical void, creating a single entity entirely focused on the collection, analysis, production and sharing of actionable public safety-focused cyber threat information and intelligence,” said Billy Bob Brown, Jr., executive assistant director for Emergency Communications, CISA. “Now, the public safety community is better equipped to focus their cyber threat intelligence and defense efforts on specific adversaries and their malicious cyberattacks.”
The Public Safety Threat Alliance will leverage information related to cybersecurity risks from across Motorola Solutions’ Cybersecurity Services, coupled with information from members and trusted partners including CISA, other ISAOs, and nonprofits dedicated to sharing cyber threat intelligence, to generate actionable intelligence which will improve members’ cybersecurity posture, defense and resilience against ever-evolving threats to their no-fail Public Safety missions.
