Abstract

With our growing reliance on interconnected computers and networks, viruses and other forms of computer abuse are becoming an increasing problem. Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) have been set up in the USA to respond to the problem, and an organisation called ‘FIRST’ has been formed by the various CERTs to act as their mouthpiece. This paper discusses both the preventative and response roles of CERTs and then looks at what is being done to establish such a system in Europe.
