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
- Security Trainings
Keeping the EGI infrastructure secure requires an understanding of attack and defense techniques that goes beyond the average skill set of system administrators. Security training is vital to guarantee that local teams are able to use available information for a complete incident response. EGI CSIRT has a diverse catalogue of training modules, developed by the team or by partner institutions.
