European Commission Deploys Crack Computer Emergency Response Team (09/12/12) Alastair Stevenson

The European Commission (EC) announced that it has deployed its anti-hacker Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-EU) on a permanent basis to combat the growing number of cyberthreats it faces.  CERTs are increasingly common within private and public sector organizations, and the European Union (EU) chose to test the use of CERTs to help protect its parliament, commission, and council organizations from increasing cyberthreats.  "It is a very successful example of what the EU institutions can achieve when they work together," says EU vice president Maros Sefcovic. "We want our CERT to be among the best, closely cooperating with the rest of the CERT community and contributing to cybersecurity for all."  The EC has urged other member state governments to follow its example and create their own CERTs.  "Cybersecurity is a priority for Europe's welfare and competitiveness," says EC's Neelie Kroes.  "The EU institutions can now count on a permanent CERT to deal with increasingly sophisticated cyberthreats against them."
