In this paper, David LUND (PSCE) addresses the issue of cybersecurity in wireless communications.
In an increasingly interconnected world, the benefits of wireless communications are numerous. Yet, because the information conveyed may be valuable, wireless communications have become attractive to attackers, and vulnerable when carried over poorly implemented or configured wireless systems.
Information exchange and interoperability of large scale IT systems in the area of European Union Home Affairs were the priority topics of the talks held between EU-lisa Executive Director Krum Garkov and Estonian Minister Andres Anvelt on 24 March in Tallinn.
The BroadMap project, coordinated by PSCE, is soon coming to an end! this project, after validating PPDR (Public Protection and Disaster Relief) organizations’ existing requirements, will pave the way to the next step - the future innovation procurement for an EU-interoperable broadband radio communication system for public safety and security, providing better services to first responders and police agencies.
The BroadMap project has been closely monitored by the European Commission DG Home, and has become a flagship project. It is presented as a successful example of pan-European cooperation of public authorities, preparing to procure innovation for the benefit of secure society.
The Final BroadMap Workshop will in particular present the outcomes of the BroadMap project, and provide information on the next steps after the end of the project.
