This October, in recognition of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) Division will host a webinar featuring the research and development (R&D) efforts of the PSCR Security portfolio. Security, including cybersecurity, is an area that affects every aspect of public safety communications. PSCR serves to develop and enhance security solutions to current and future public safety communications.
In this webinar, PSCR's Security Portfolio lead John Beltz will discuss the transition that is taking place in public safety communications technology to solve interoperability issues, and the R&D that is under way to ensure that transition is happening securely. Mr. Beltz will also be joined by PSCR Prize Challenge Manager Gary Howarth to discuss the new Mobile Fingerprinting Innovation Technology (mFIT) Challenge.
