Agenda and registration

Check out the Agenda and register here:


CSIRTs (Computer Security Incident Response Teams) have an important role in preventing cyber-attacks and in coordinating the technical response at national level. They may help in monitoring and reporting cybercrimes, in sharing technical information on ongoing or past attacks and in securing electronic evidence.

It is therefore essential that CSIRTs and criminal justice authorities put in place an efficient and effective collaboration, where roles, responsibilities and segregation of duties are defined and agreed upon.
