> Hi Eoin
> A while back you helped promote a survey I was running on whether or not
> Ireland should have a Computer Emergency Response Team.  Well thanks to the
> feedback from the OWASP Ireland members and others I am happy to say that
> the first national Computer Emergency Response Team was launched today.
>  The
> CERT service will be run under the auspices of the Irish Reporting and
> Information Security Service (IRISS) www.iriss.ie.
> The Irish Reporting and Information Security Service (IRISS) is a not for
> profit organisation manned by a group of volunteers made up from the best
> information security professionals in the country providing the following
> services;
> - - Incident Reporting
> IRISS provides clients with a resource whereby computer security incidents
> can be reported anonymously and in confidence.
> - - Alerts and Warnings
> IRISS provides advanced alerts and warnings on potential vulnerabilities
> and
> threats facing their information technology infrastructure. Where possible
> these alerts will be tailored specifically for the Irish audience and also
> to meet clients' requirements such as non-technical alerts for owner
> managers of SMEs and more detailed technical alerts for IT specialists
> working for larger firms.
> - - Conduct Research
> Research and surveys will be conducted on information security matters
> within Ireland to get a better understanding as to what is happening in the
> Irish Internet community. This should provide meaningful statistics to help
> drive home some key messages to companies and raise security awareness
> levels using statistics pertinent to the Irish market.
> - - Sanitised Attack Notifications
> IRISS provides an alerting service to companies regarding attacks that are
> actively happening to other Irish companies so they can better prevent the
> same attack happening to them.
> - - Provide Guidelines and Advice
> IRISS will provide clients with information, advice and best practises on
> how to secure and manage the information technology platforms their
> businesses are dependant on.  IRISS also supports a number of online forums
> where clients can raise issues and queries with our experts or others
> within
> our community.
> Your members may find the above to be of interest to them so I would
> appreciate if you could let then know the service has been launched and
> that
> they can sign up for the service at no cost at www.iriss.ie.
> Thanks
