This Just In! Sneak Peek at 2022 Sessions...

[Keynote] Priority for Data, Video and Information Services

Speaker: Billy Bob Brown, Jr, Executive Assistant Director at Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)

Critical infrastructure vulnerability to cyber-attacks requires a whole of nation approach to mitigate even sophisticated nation states.  A cyber-attack on the Nation’s critical infrastructure, whether successful or not, is likely to cause a significant overload on communications infrastructure and diminish private sector efforts along with coordination of federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial government response.  When the target of attack is the communications infrastructure itself, the resulting impacts impede communications operability and interoperability amongst emergency responders.  Access to data, video and information services with priority and preemption is essential to effective and coordinated activities to ensure the safety of our citizens. The Next Generations Network Priority Service capabilities coordinated by CISA, enhance national security and the ability of emergency responders to seamlessly exchange information to perform mission essential national critical functions. Learn more about these critical CISA services from Emergency Communications Division Executive Assistant Director Billy Bob Brown, Jr.

[Deep Dive Workshop] Critical Communications for Complex Incident Response

High-performance Public Safety Broadband Networks (PSBN) are now providing day-to-day benefits for police, fire, and EMS systems worldwide. But the transformative value these networks bring to agencies forced to address major complex incidents is profound. From major disasters such as wildfire, earthquake, or hurricane to large-scale mass-casualty responses, the mission-critical network services, emerging PSBN-equipped devices, and compelling command applications are re-shaping responses. This IWCE 2022 workshop examines complex incident responses and how these new capabilities change public safety operations. The workshop will highlight PSBN offerings, new devices, and incident command tools.
