ENISA has launched new Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERT or CSIRT) material: a report on the CSIRT exercise pilots, a draft baseline capabilities definition for national / governmental CERTs, and 3 DVD images to support the exercise material.
Field report from the two CSIRT exercise pilots
This is a 70 pages document from two CSIRT exercise pilots carried out this year. The pilot itself was aimed at putting our material to a test. The document is a hands-on report on logistics, preparation and experiences during the event. As a result, additional exercises were already held on request in e.g. Hong Kong.
First draft definition of "Baseline capabilities for national / governmental CERTs"
This draft document defines baseline capabilities for CERTs with national responsibility in the areas of service provision, mandate, cooperation and operation. The project was triggered by the European Commission in their CIIP communication and is derived from input we received from 80+ CERT teams in Europe. The document is a snapshot of an ongoing activity to enhance cross-border cooperation of national/governmental CERTs, that will be continued in 2010.
3 Live DVD images for the CSIRT exercises
3 DVD images for teachers and students, to enable an easy application of our exercise material. The material is not only useful for CERTs, but can also be applied in any kind of training for security professionals.
