National Cyber Security Centre
The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is the operational side of the Department in regard to network and information security. The NCSC encompasses the State's national/governmental Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT-IE). CSIRT-IE is seeking international recognition with respected peers in the respective government and national CSIRT communities so that it can effectively undertake its work on situational awareness and incident response. CSIRT-IE is initially focusing on the State sector and acts as a national point of contact.
To date, the NCSC has focused on developing capacity and engaging with national and international stakeholders around securing systems and responding to incidents. The NCSC has also worked to collate and analyse data from cyber-attacks and to coordinate with those targeted to introduce mitigation measures. The NCSC continues to work with utility operators and with similar bodies in other jurisdictions to ensure that risks to infrastructure in Ireland are managed appropriately.
