EC launched a couple of projects to strengthen European cyber-security capacity and improve collaboration on cyber threats and incidents in EU. One of the projects aims to support the advancement of MeliCERTes, a cooperation network of computer security incident response teams, or CSIRTs, in EU member states. In this context, a consortium comprising alert and response centers for IT incidents in Poland, Austria, Estonia, and Luxembourg will work closely with the EU Cybersecurity Agency to develop and maintain MeliCERTes platform, offering sustainable services and collaboration tools to the EU computer security incident response teams.
The MeliCERTes has been developed to improve the operational co-operation and facilitate the sharing of information between the computer security incident response teams of EU member states and across the EU. Its primary purpose is to facilitate cross-border co-operation encompassing data exchange among two or more computer security incident response teams based on the concept of trust circles. The existing MeliCERTes version is using open-source tools developed and maintained by the computer security incident response teams. It allows for the use of any key functions undertaken by the computer security incident response teams, including incident management, threat intelligence, secure communications, and artefact analysis.
