Improving Security of Alert, Warning Systems on FCC October Meeting Agenda
Friday, October 07, 2022 | Comments

In its tentative agenda for its October open meeting, the FCC included an item that would improve the security of the national alert and warning systems.

At the meeting, the FCC will consider a notice of proposed rulemaking that would strengthen the operational readiness of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), including by reducing the vulnerability of those systems to cyberattacks.

Also on the agenda is consideration on how to increase use of the 12.7 – 13.25 GHz band and consideration of a notice that would ensure continued support for the Uniendo a Puerto Rico and the Connect USVI Fund. These funds provide support to carriers in Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) to enhance their networks’ reliability and resiliency in the face of hurricanes and other natural disasters.

The meeting is scheduled for October 27, 2022 at 10:30 a.m. at the commission’s meeting room. The meeting will also be streamed live.
