Roles & Functions

CERT-GH coordinates security incidents on behalf of its constituency and has no authority reaching further than that. CERT-GH is however expected to make operational recommendations regarding vulnerabilities and mitigation of incidents and/or incident handling. Such recommendations can include but are not limited to blocking addresses or networks. The implementation of such recommendations is not a responsibility of CERT-GH, but solely of those to whom such recommendations are made.

CERT-GH is authorized to address all types of computer security incidents which occur, or threaten to occur, in our Constituency (see 3.2) and which require cross-organizational coordination.
The level of support given by CERT-GH will vary depending on the type and severity of the incident or issue, the type of constituent, the size of the user community affected, and CERT-GH’s resources at the time. Special attention will be given to issues affecting critical infrastructure.
