As part of National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week (NPSTW), we’d like to remind the 911 community the importance of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s (CISA) Priority Telecommunications Services (PTS). 911 operators and NG 9-1-1 planners depend on secure and interoperable communications to execute their mission-critical operations daily.
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) leads the nation’s effort to understand and manage cyber and physical risk to our critical infrastructure. Our 2020 Year in Review displays key examples of CISA’s work to carry out its mission in 2020, including milestones and accomplishments as the Agency advanced strategic priorities to maintain a secure and resilient infrastructure for the nation.
