CISA is pleased to announce the Public Safety Communications and Cyber Resiliency Toolkit
has been updated to include new resources and can be found on the SAFECOM Technology Resources webpage cisa.gov/safecom/technology
under "Communications and Cyber Resiliency."
The Toolkit is a collection of resources for public safety agencies and others responsible for communications networks to assist with evaluating current resiliency capabilities, identifying ways to improve resiliency, and developing plans for mitigating the effects of potential resiliency threats. It is designed to be user-friendly and features an interactive graphic where topic specific system-based resources appear as building shapes (blue) and threats are cloud shapes (red).
Current topic areas include:
Alerts, Warnings, and Notifications (AWNs)
Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP)
Local Access Networks (LAN)
Next Generation 911 (NG911)
Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) Disruptions
Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)
The Toolkit is expandable and maintained as a living site to allow for future resources and topic areas. Originally published in July 2020, the Toolkit has been refreshed and the updated version is now available. The enhanced version features 48 resources over 14 topic areas and includes not only CISA guidance, but also guidance from other trusted resources, such as the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). We are also unveiling a new look and feel designed to enhance the user experience.
I encourage you to share the Toolkit's blog post
and website link with your colleagues and others who might be interested in this document.
Thank you again for your continued support of this resource.
