Number: 75-001

The purpose of this document is to establish the minimal guidelines and requirements for the protection of NG9-1-1 assets or elements within a changing business environment. This document:
  • Identifies the basic requirements, standards, procedures, or practices to provide the minimum levels of security applicable to NG9-1-1 Entities.
  • Provides a basis for auditing, and assessing levels of security and risk to NG9-1-1 Entities, assets or elements, and exception approval / risk acceptance process in the case of non-compliance to these guidelines.

This document is applicable to all NG9-1-1 Entities including, but not limited to:

  • Public Safety Answering Points
  • NG9-1-1 "ESINet”
  • NG9-1-1 Service Providers
  • NG9-1-1 Vendors
  • Any Contracted service that perform functions or services that require securing NG9-1-1 assets.
  • Those who use, design, have access to, or are responsible for NG9-1-1 assets (includes computers, networks, information, etc.).

This document will impact the operations of 9-1-1 systems and PSAPs as standardized security practices are implemented where they have not been in place before. NG9-1-1 Entities will be required to understand, implement and maintain new security solutions, mechanisms and processes.
