EkomCERT is the security incident response team for the telecom sector.

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.
