Cybersecurity for Mission Critical Communications

Created Mar 25 2022, 9:40 AM by Matthew Hetherington

Similar to what is happening in enterprise, organizations that use Mission Critical communications are under increased pressure to deliver better experiences and outcomes every day. To do so, they are using advanced, connected technologies and even moving to cloud services. The challenge to adopting new technology faster is that organizations must prevent cybercriminals and bad actors from disabling this technology through DDoS attacks, ransomware attacks, phishing, and data theft or compromise. Implementing a strong security mindset in the organization and an infrastructure resilient to attack is top of mind for every organization that uses Mission Critical communications to keep their mission on track

When it comes to Land Mobile Radio, LMR it is increasingly being connected to the internet and enterprise networks. The increased connectivity could give threat actors more opportunities to compromise the critical availability of LMR communication. Defensive measures such as patching, deploying anti-malware solutions and secure configuration are not enough to address the potential for advanced persistent threats (APTs), which are able to discreetly hide in networks until they cause system-wide failure. Therefore, it is essential for organizations to conduct threat hunting activities in their LMR systems to ensure they continually monitor for and address malicious activity in LMR cores.
