Source: MCCResources

EENA announced today the launch of the EENA Group on Cybersecurity, a group exclusively for experts in the field of cybersecurity in relation to emergency services and public safety.

EENA launches this network to bring together international experts and bridge communication between them. The group will help its members learn from each other, share best practices and come up with a set of recommendations specifically designed for emergency response organisations.

Recent cyberattacks to organisations around the world, including hospitals, highlighted the need for better preparedness. The service provided by rescue organisations needs to be non-stop: interference with first response can have unnecessary repercussions, resulting even in the death of people who could otherwise be saved.

The group is open to both EENA members & non-members. Experts and professionals in the field are invited to join us and help shape the future of cybersecurity for emergency services. We expect participants to cover all relevant stakeholders, including public authorities, researchers and companies.

I you would like to be part of the network shaping the future of cybersecurity, then you can send an email to Cristina Lumbreras, EENA Technical Director, at cl@eena.org.
