THE GOVERNMENT’S Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) launched its website in mid July. The website allows reporting of incidents and vulnerabilities related to the security of computers and communication technologies, the IT Association of Slovakia (ITAS) reported on its website.

The CSIRT was established as an independent department of DataCentrum, an organisation under the Ministry of Finance, to provide services connected with security incident handling. It will provide services mainly to government in order to promote responses to IT security incidents aimed at national critical infrastructure as well as services for public administration and the public (excluding classified information and military incidents). It will also provide proactive and educational services. The CSIRT is in the second phase of its development. At present, its main goals are infrastructure building, creating relationships with national and international organisations, and communicating with the academic sphere, commercial companies working in the field of information security, and internet service providers.
