Driving the Global Ecosystem of Incident Response Capabilities: New Studies Now Available. The 12th meeting of the CSIRTs Network, held earlier this week, was the opportunity for the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity to introduce the following two new guides dedicated to improving the work of incident response teams:

The event, hosted by the German Presidency of the Council of the European Union, gathered together CSIRTs Network Members (EU Member States’ appointed CSIRTs and CERT-EU ) to discuss operational cooperation capabilities in the EU as defined by the Network and Information Security Directive.

The role of the CSIRTs Network is to provide a forum where the national and sectoral CSIRTs of all Member States and CERT-EU can cooperate, exchange information, and work on how to build trust. They are dedicated to the improvement of the way cross-border incidents are handled and how to respond in a coordinated manner to specific incidents. ENISA provides the secretariat of the CSIRTs Network and actively supports the cooperation between the members of the network and the organisation of their meetings.

What are the studies intended for?

Both studies are intended for incident response teams. The first one was conducted to investigate ways on how to establish and improve teams. The second one focusses on trends in Energy and Air Transport Incident Response (IR) and offers insights on current challenges and gaps.
