What type of security is in place so that I know the emergency alerts are being sent by an authorized agency?

Government officials, Alert Distributors and the operator of the NAAD system take security very seriously.

In addition to the security measures that government agencies take every day to ensure access to their system is by authorized personnel only, additional passwords and user identification is needed for users of the Alert Ready system. Separately, Pelmorex, the operator of the NAAD system, has additional measures in place to prevent unauthorized access.
