Working with CERT NZ

The NCSC works closely with CERT NZ (Computer Emergency Response Team) to provide guidance and help on cyber threats.

  • NCSC provides protective cyber services, information and guidance to organisations of national significance.
  • NCSC takes the lead in responding to cyber incidents at national level (ie potentially affecting national security and/or our nationally significant systems and information).
  • CERT NZ helps business, organisations and individuals wanting prevention and mitigation advice on online security issues that do not require the NCSC’s specialist skills and knowledge to respond to.
  • CERT NZ has primary responsibility for cyber threat reporting and a coordination role in threat response.
