Our public safety infrastructure is under cyber-attack! Like every other part of the internet-based economy, these systems are continuously exposed to attacks that have been increasing at an alarming rate. 
Over 240 million 9-1-1 calls are made every year, with over 75% coming from wireless phones.1,2 Almost 6,000 public-safety answering points (PSAPs) field the calls and work in conjunction with approximately 70,000 police, fire, and emergency medical dispatch centers to send resources to those in need.3,4 All such centers across the country rely heavily on data systems . . .
