Compelling ‘call to action’ to join the Public Safety Threat Allianc

Tech & Sec Weekly


Recognised by the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Motorola Solutions has established a cyber threat Information Sharing and Analysis Organisation (ISAO) to provide public safety agencies the capabilities they need to defend against attacks.

Since January 2022, Motorola Solutions’ Public Safety Threat Alliance observed 350+ cyber attacks impacting public safety organisations worldwide, often resulting in downtime of critical services.

Cyber attacks against public safety agencies increased in both 2021 and 2022, with 2022 seeing a 700 percent increase in distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks for public safety organisations and a 179 percent increase in hacktivist activity.

In many Australian states and territories, emergency services use the Motorola Solutions Land Mobile Radio (LMR) communication networks and devices as well as their managed services to help maintain reliable voice and data communications and keep their technology securely and optimised, 24 x 7.

However, LMR networks and other critical infrastructures can also be targeted by threat actors (e.g. critical infrastructures including utilities being targeted in the war in Ukraine)

Motorola Solutions continues to grow and invest in its portfolio of communications, software and video security products including our cyber security offerings. The ActiveEye platform monitors about 1M cyber attack events on public safety networks each month, with 98 percent auto-triaged by artificial intelligence, and the rest looked at by cybersecurity experts on our team to determine how to mitigate risks.

Among Australian customers already using these cyber services are the NSW Telco Authority for which Motorola Solutions are providing a comprehensive suite of public safety services for PSN, including network lifecycle upgrades and 24 x 7 cybersecurity, helping to keep this mission-critical technology up-to-date, secure and performing reliably in any situation.
