In the area of public safety and defence communities everywhere face increasingly complex threats and hazards that present risks and challenges that extend also to issues of national security. There is, therefore, great pressure and responsibility for state agencies, government departments, and private organizations, to respond to and meet the new challenges. These include providing effective risk management, crisis response and a greater situational awareness during any crisis.
In public safety, emergency response, and national security it is essential to take a preventative approach that utilizes data-driven insights, location intelligence, inter-agency and citizen collaboration. Significantly, the large amounts of generated data that can be used, for example, to help predict and prevent criminal activity, needs to be secure and comply with the requirements for data security and privacy.
By embracing digital transformation that includes investing in advanced digital infrastructure and mobile solutions, IoT, and sophisticated analytical tools utilizing artificial intelligence (AI), service providers can generate substantial savings and drive value for the public. Furthermore, organizations will be in a far better position to avert, respond to and resolve dangerous or emergency situations.
