Motorola Launches Cyber Threat Information Sharing Hub for Public Safety

Motorola Solutions announced this week the creation of the Public Safety Threat Alliance, a cyber threat intelligence sharing hub for the public safety community.

Motorola Solutions announced this week the creation of the Public Safety Threat Alliance, a cyber threat intelligence sharing hub for the public safety community.

Motorola described the Public Safety Threat Alliance (PSTA) as an information sharing and analysis organization (ISAO) and noted that it’s recognized by the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), which serves as its National Coordinator for Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience.

The PSTA is open to all public safety agencies. Its role is to help members share and analyze information from multiple sources with the goal of improving the cybersecurity posture of public safety organizations. It aims to help agencies improve their defenses and resilience.

Information is collected from various sources, including law enforcement, EMS, mobile communications systems, commercial security products, and ISAO partners. The information is used to create actionable intelligence, including reports, APIs, threat lists, dark web intel, SOC intel, and MDR data.

“The establishment of the Public Safety Threat Alliance fills a critical void, creating a single entity entirely focused on the collection, analysis, production and sharing of actionable public safety-focused cyber threat information and intelligence,” said Billy Bob Brown, Jr., executive assistant director for Emergency Communications at CISA. “Now, the public safety community is better equipped to focus their cyber threat intelligence and defense efforts on specific adversaries and their malicious cyberattacks.”
