Since 1993, Computer and Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) have impacted communities across the world by helping them build their skills and capabilities to prepare for and respond to cyberattacks.
CERTs are one of the main pillars and first line of defense for cybersecurity in any country. They evaluate a cyberthreat or attack in four stages. These stages include identifying, preventing, responding to, and resolving the threat. These organizations’ main aim is to develop and disseminate knowledge and awareness about cybersecurity.
Introduction to CERTrating
The Global Cyber Security Center (GCSEC), a not-for-profit foundation of the Italian postal service provider Poste Italiane, has come up with a new tool named CERTrating.
How does it work?
CERTrating follows the SIM3 maturity model which covers four quadrants: (O) Organization, (H) Human, (T)Tools and (P) Processes. The maturity model is measured on a scale of 0 to 4.
Apart from offering the maturity level of CERT and its respective services, CERTrating also provides recommendations that can be followed to improve the level of maturity to an optimal position. The tool will be available in a short time. For more details, click here.
