Up One Level



CERT - the Computer Emergency Response Team, is recognised as the Internet's official emergency team. It was established in the USA by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in 1988 following the Morris computer Worm incident crippled approximately 10% of all computers connected to the Internet.

CERT is located at the Software Engineering Institute - a US government funded research and development centre operated by Carnegie Mellon University - and focuses on security breaches, denial-of-service incidents, provides alerts and incident-handling and avoidance guidelines.

CERT is also the publisher of Information Security alerts, training and awareness campaigns. CERT may be found on the World Wide Web at www.cert.org.
