Public Safety Threat Alliance will serve as a cybersecurity services hub for world-class information sharing and threat intelligence collaboration for the global public safety community.
Motorola Solutions today announced the creation of a Cyber Threat Information Sharing and Analysis (ISAO) organization for public safety. The Public Safety Threat Alliance, an ISAO-recognized cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency (CISA), is open to all public safety agencies. CISA, under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, is serving as the National Coordinator for Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience in this critical initiative.
ISAOs are groups focused on sharing information related to cybersecurity risks and incidents with members from the public and private sectors. Members of the Public Safety Threat Alliance can share and analyze data from multiple sources to proactively contribute to a stronger cybersecurity posture for the public safety community, constituents, and other stakeholders, including government agencies and businesses.
According to a press release from Motorola Solutions:
“The creation of the Public Safety Threat Alliance fills a critical void by creating a single entity entirely focused on the collection, analysis, production and sharing of information and intelligence on cyber threats focused on public safety,” said said Billy Bob Brown, Jr., executive assistant director for emergency communications, CISA. “Now, the public safety community is better equipped to focus its cyber threat intelligence and defense efforts on specific adversaries and their malicious cyberattacks.”
The Public Safety Threat Alliance will leverage cybersecurity risk information from across Motorola Solutions’ cybersecurity services, as well as information from members and trusted partners, including CISA, other ISAOs, and non-profit organizations. dedicated to sharing cyber threat intelligence, to generate actionable intelligence that will improve members’ cybersecurity posture, defense and resilience against ever-evolving threats to their unwavering public safety missions.
