In the last few years, businesses have changed the way they protect data.
Studies show they’re abandoning traditional backup and recovery in favor of disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS).1 With DRaaS, businesses enjoy the luxury of keeping a replica of their data hosted at a remote site that they can fail over to in an emergency—without bearing any of the infrastructure costs or maintenance responsibilities. All infrastructure and maintenance is the responsibility of the provider. Gartner predicts that global DRaaS revenue will reach $3.4 billion by 2019. The firm cited several reasons for the shift:
Everyone should be able to communicate from any device - especially in an emergency situation. The Cisco IP Interoperability and Collaboration Solution (IPICS) brings this capability to ANY organization without anyone having to purchase new or unique devices. In this clip we build a fully functional network on set to see exactly how this works, even using an iPad to communicate to a hand held radio.
This paper examines how the increasingly ubiquitous connectedness of our IoE world can help provide public safety and justice agencies with new opportunities to meet and overcome the challenges they face.
This paper examines how the increasingly ubiquitous connectedness of our IoE world can help provide public safety and justice agencies with new opportunities to meet and overcome the challenges they face. It specifically examines this topic through applications in law enforcement, emergency response, corrections, courts, and national security, and shows how IoE can help transform agencies to better protect citizens and make communities safer. Finally, this paper will provide recommendations on strategy implementation to enable agencies to take the next steps.
To effectively respond to these challenges, public safety agencies must be able to rely on secure networks with integrated voice, video, and data capabilities. With these networks and their associated assets, agencies can obtain more timely and accurate information, enhancing situational awareness and improving response times. Cisco and our partners can help agencies obtain secure networks.
The Internet of Everything (IoE) is a continuous interaction among people, processes, data, and things. Sensors, networks, and smart devices are ubiquitous, providing a torrent of streaming data or big data. The Internet of Things (IoT), which is a network of physical objects accessed through the Internet that can sense and communicate, is a component of IoE.
Cisco is helping customers and strategic partners leverage the full potential of IoE to achieve radical results across all sectors and industries. Indeed, IoE is capable of helping public safety and justice agencies increase cost efficiency, improve safety and security, provide better response times, and increase productivity.

Sebasticook Valley Health’s Emergency Department found that when it came to obtaining medication history, DrFirst’s MedHx(SM) solution provided vast improvements over the built-in feed from their integrated electronic medical records system. The hospital did a side by side comparison of MedHx(SM) and their existing feed, and determined that MedHx(SM) provided superior results, which reduced staff time spent on medication reconciliation, improved patient safety and enabled the hospital pharmacy, as well as doctors and nurses, to be more proactive in pulling medication history upon patient admission.

In February 2016, the computer network at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center (HPMC) was down for more than a week as the Southern California hospital worked to recover from a ransomware attack. Hospital administrators declared an internal emergency as staff struggled to access patient records and computer systems critical for patient care.
Ransomware has taken the world by storm. CryptoWall extorted an estimated $18 million, and WannaCry locked up more than 230,000 computers across the globe in 2017. Companies of all sizes are sitting up and taking notice. Even brands with a strong security investment have fallen victim. We’ve seen ransomware cripple businesses: nearly 19% of businesses stop operations immediately after discovering a ransomware attack.1 Hospital emergency rooms forced to turn people away; global shipping logistics experience massive disruption; and even a summer blockbuster movie held up for ransom. The FBI estimates ransomware is now a billion-dollar business.
Ransomware has been around for a while, and it has spiked in recent years. It secured 5th place as the most common variety of malware in 2017, up from 22nd place in 2014.2 Originally ransomware targeted individuals and was considered a consumer nuisance. It has now become a business menace.

Many governments embrace mobile network operator (MNO) networks as partners in the quest to establish high-performance mobile broadband data capabilities supporting emergency services. The question is: Who is better placed to operate future mission-critical LTE networks, governments or MNOs?
