Last week some ETIS members met to discuss the creation of an ‘EU CERT Telco Network’. The meeting was hosted by Belgacom in Brussels on 10 January and was attended by 14 participations from companies such as A1 Telekom Austria, Belgacom, Deutsche Telekom, KPN, Slovak Telekom, TDC, Swisscom and Elion.
CERT stands for ‘Computer Emergency Response Team’ and the purpose of this meeting was to see how the EU Telcos are running their CERTs. The group also explored how the CERTs can co-operate across borders and they decided to establish an EU wide Telco CERT Network. The main focus of the group will be to share their honey-pots and feedback loops as well as set up real time communications between the CERTs.
