At Worldwide Public Safety Symposium, Steve Ballmer outlined the ways that the company’s innovative technology and vast partner ecosystem will tackle the 21st century’s four core emerging public safety technology trends: cloud-based solutions, cybersecurity, unified communications and social media in public safety. This includes news that Microsoft’ll begin exploring how to support its Child Exploitation Tracking System (CETS) in the cloud. “CETS is a powerful tool for helping police agencies around the world fight online child exploitation, and there’s no doubt that a cloud-based version will enable more public safety organizations to use it in their efforts,” said Ballmer. “We’re glad to work in close partnership with public safety agencies around the world that are focused on this issue because we believe the combination of their expertise in combating these kinds of crimes and our knowledge of technology can have a big impact on the effort to prevent online crimes against children.”
