Motorola Solutions now offers Government and public safety customers expanded cyber security services to help protect against cyber attacks, particularly so as they share information across agencies and work together to solve crimes.
The company’s new Cyber Security Professional Service is a collaborative effort with customers to help them identify and manage cyber risk within their operations by evaluating technology, processes and staff capabilities and recommending solutions to help agencies respond quickly and effectively to any potential breaches.
According to a recent survey of businesses and Government agencies, the number of cyber security incidents detected by respondents climbed to 42.8 million in 2014, representing an increase of more than 48% in just one year. That’s the equivalent of 117,339 incoming attacks each day across a 12-month period.
The Cyber Security Professional Service helps maintain the integrity of police investigations by protecting against cyber threats to mission-critical radio networks and real-time information sources such as videos of incidents and photographs and fingerprints of suspects that are shared between agencies.
The new service adds to Motorola Solutions’ capabilities that already help prevent breaches such as network security monitoring and software security updates which enable customers to maintain the most current and effective versions of programs like records management systems.
“Many organisations believe their most sensitive mission-critical information is safe, but it’s becoming clear that even public safety and Government agencies are prime targets for cyber criminals,” said Kelly Mark, corporate vice-president at Motorola Solutions.
“The Cyber Security Professional Service builds on Motorola Solutions’ decades-long experience in mission-critical security services and helps customers respond quickly to ever-changing security threats by providing periodic assessments designed to identify risks and prioritise next steps towards maintaining secure communications.”
