The objective of this call is to support the CERTs/CSIRTs (Computer Emergency Security Incident Response Team/Computer Emergency Response Team) to create, maintain or expand national capacities to run a range of cyber security services, in order to reach a state of preparedness that will allow them to participate on an equal footing in the Cyber Security Core Service Platform – cooperation mechanisms established through the 2015 Work Programme.

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
– Activities for increasing the preparedness of the CERTs/CSIRTs;
– Establishment of access points from the CERTs/CSIRTs to the Core Service Platform – cooperation mechanisms (e.g. secure devices and software, interfaces, gateways, translation of local tools into common formats)

Among financed actions
– Acquisition and operation of national level cyber security IT systems, experimental testbeds, and training facilities, that will facilitate the cross-border cooperation of CERTs/CSIRTs, which may be complemented with very sophisticated toolsets specific to the cyber security area that directly support CERT/CSIRT operations;
– Hiring of trained staff, training of current staff, joint training courses, cooperation meetings, Europe-wide cyber security exercises, data protection compliance audits etc.
