TF-CSIRT 2018: Task Force on Computer Security Incident Response Teams

‹ Back
Routing security is vital to the future and stability of the Internet, and the global MANRS initiative implements the crucial fixes needed to eliminate the most common malicious or incidental routing threats.

In 2017 alone, 14,000 routing outages or attacks – such as hijacking, leaks, and spoofing – led to stolen data, lost revenue, reputational damage and more, all on a global scale. Operators, enterprises and policymakers have converged around the concrete steps – Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security – that prevent these incidents.

MANRS is a global initiative, supported by the Internet Society, to work with operators, enterprises, and policymakers to implement crucial fixes needed to eliminate the most common routing threats.

The Task Force on Computer Security Incident Response Teams, TF-CSIRT, provides a forum where members of the CSIRT community from the research and education networking community and other sectors, such as defence and law enforcement agencies, from around the world, exchange experiences and knowledge in a trusted environment in order to improve cooperation and coordination.

TF-CSIRT develops and provides services for CSIRTs, promotes the use of common standards and procedures for handling security incidents, and coordinates joint initiatives where appropriate. This includes the training of CSIRT staff (TRANSITS), and assisting in the establishment and development of new CSIRTs. It maintains a system for registering and accrediting CSIRTs (Trusted Introducer), as well as certifying service standards.

Kevin Meynell will be speaking about MANRS at this event.
