OxCERT is the second UK higher education computer incident response team to have achieved accredited status with TF-CSIRT/TrustedIntroducer. OxCERT joins as the eighth accredited UK member alongside the National Cyber Security Centre, British Telecoms, and Janet, a global community of 178 security and incident response teams.
The achieved accreditation confirms OxCERT operating at a high level of process maturity and complies with a range of standards widely accepted within the global security and incident response community.
The Trusted Introducer service forms the trusted backbone of infrastructure services, serves as clearinghouse for all security and incident response teams, and grants access to a global information sharing network.
