EGI CSIRTComputer Security Incident Response Team
EGI CSIRT coordinates operational security activities within the EGI Infrastructure to deliver a secure and stable infrastructure, giving scientists and researchers the protection and confidence they require to safely and effectively carry out their research.
WHAT WE DO
- Prevention of security incidents (security monitoring, software vulnerability handling, risk assessment and mitigation)
- Incident response
- Security policy and procedures
