The New York City Fire Department is looking for consultants to help it prevent doxing of its 16,000 firefighters, emergency medical technicians and administrative support personnel across the five boroughs. Doxing -- or the weaponizing of an individual’s personal information to punish, harass or to encourage threats – is a growing problem, potentially affecting anyone on the wrong end of a grudge, including police, poll workers and school officials. In a request for information first reported by the New York Post, FDNY says it is looking for a consultant to provide expertise and software solutions, including managed detection and response services as well as real-time threat mitigation and recovery capabilities. A vendor with experience working with large organizations would also be required to provide protective strategies addressing the misuse of personally identifiable information and assistance protecting PII.
