EkomCERT was established at the Norwegian Communications Authority 1 July 2017.
EkomCERT cooperates with the telecom operators and has good knowledge of their safety organisations. Presence is during normal working hours, but the team is able to mobilize 24/7 if needed.
The main tasks are:
- 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.
