What is it all about?
CERT (Computer Emergency Response Team)
Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERTs, aka CSIRTs) are the key tool for Critical Information Infrastructure Protection (CIIP). Every single country that is connected to the internet must have capabilities at hand to effectively and efficient respond to information security incidents. But CERTs must do much more. They must act as primary security service providers for government and citizens. At the same time, they must act as awareness raisers and educators.
Not every country connected to the internet disposes of CERT capabilities. And the level of maturity among those who do vary dramatically. It is ENISA's mission to, as much as we can, clear out the "white spots" on the CERT world map and to minimise the gaps by facilitating setting-up, training and exercising of CERTs.
