Cybersecurity: launch of global expert network

 

 

 

EENA is happy to announce 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.

 

 

 

 


Join the network shaping the future of
cybersecurity for emergency services
 

 

 

Context
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.

 

Aim of Working Group
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.

 

Who is this group for?
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.
