What is CERT-In?

    Government-mandated entity for information technology security, the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team. CERT-In was established with the goals of responding to occurrences involving computer security, disclosing flaws, and advancing good IT security practices all across the nation.

    A team of information security experts called a Computer Emergency Response Team is required to safeguard against, identify, and address any cybersecurity issues that may affect an organization.

    Any compromise, breach, attempt, security vulnerability, violation of security rules or guidelines, leak, or unauthorized access to data or systems must be reported to CERT-In as soon as it is discovered.

    The organization in charge of CERT-In is the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. The Information Technology (Amendment) Act of 2008 designated CERT-In as the nation's agency for cyber security and recognized it as a statutory organization.

    CERT leaders and members can respond more effectively and deliberately when there is an organizational framework in place. A management structure and accountability system help to ensure the safety of the team. The management of information, communication, and activity documentation are all enhanced by the organization.
