EkomCERT is established at the Norwegian Communications Authority. The response team is being built up and will be fully operational before 1 July 2017.
EkomCERT must have good knowledge of and cooperate well with the telecom operators and their safety organisations. Presence will be during normal working hours, but the team will be able to mobilize 24/7.
The main tasks will be:
- To hold expertise concerning the vulnerability and threat picture in general, and sector-specific challenges in particular
- To maintain professional networks to other authorities and relevant niche operators
- To provide assistance in the event of serious incidents, as information sharing, advice and coordination
- In the event of serious incidents, provide a situation picture which gives Nkom's management a good basis to take correct decisions.
