In a more preventive component, RCTS CERT provides an alert service and offers recommendations regarding potential security risks and malicious activities. One of the objectives of this area is to develop a culture of safety on the Internet.

FEATURES

At the beginning of 2011, RCTS CERT became a member of FIRST (Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams).

The RCTS CERT obtained the Trusted Introducer certification in January 2015, becoming the first national team to be certified.

From its creation until the end of 2014, RCTS CERT was, in fact, called CERT.PT, gradually assuming a national mission to coordinate security incident response. After the creation of the National Cybersecurity Center, this entity took responsibility for the national incident response coordination, assuming the current name of RCTS CERT, reflecting the new scope of activity.
