Technology is a vital aspect of public safety worldwide, and this trend is only likely to grow substantially in the foreseeable future. For new devices to work effectively, full-scale coverage must be in place, and when it comes to people’s safety, there is no room for downtime. Therefore, reliable connectivity is crucial for a rapid, real-time response anytime, anywhere. With experience in uncompromising environments where every second counts, below are Rajant’s words of advice for the public safety sector when dealing with connectivity and bandwidth needs.
The ongoing cyber skills gap affects organizations worldwide and ultimately affects the entire digital economy. And cybersecurity changes and evolves at break-neck speed, which makes it harder to keep up with training and learning. On top of this, as remote work increasingly becomes the norm, and infrastructures become more distributed, the need for IT pros with up-to-date security skills and knowledge will continue to grow.
The twentieth century saw huge progress in gender equality as increasing numbers of women embarked upon professional career paths. Certainly, in some sectors such as education, medicine and law, women are increasingly prominent in the general workforce and leadership roles, but other industries appear to be a long way off from achieving full equity. Unfortunately, cybersecurity is one such industry with much progress to be made in terms of diversity and gender parity. While cybersecurity is one of the most fast-paced, rapidly evolving modern industries, this evolution does not appear to apply to the number of women involved in the field.

Matching staff levels to demand has always been one of the toughest gigs, and in an industry sector like security where staffing needs to be set at an adequate level, it becomes even tougher. Right now, the security industry is seeing unprecedented levels of blow-outs - because of illness, lockdown, self-isolation and home schooling. Security businesses have to meet contractual demands with set staffing levels and as a result the sector is under further pressure to ensure they can fill any blow-out shifts. Thanks to COVID-related complications, staff sickness and absence rates could reach as much as 15% this winter.

Because if the dominoes fall and privacy is involved, the repercussions can result in a disaster.
It’s undeniable that Machine Learning (ML) is changing the game for securing cloud infrastructure. Security vendors have rapidly adopted ML as part of their solutions, and for good reason: By analyzing massive quantities of data, it can help identify threats, speed incident response, and ease the burden on over-taxed security operations teams.
