Our research focuses on cybersecurity challenges in national security, homeland security, and critical infrastructure protection and produces new ways to improve cybersecurity practice in private and public organizations.
We were there for the first internet security incident and we’re still here 25 years later. Only now, we’ve expanded our expertise from incident response to a comprehensive, proactive approach to securing networked systems. The CERT Division is part of the Software Engineering Institute, which is based at Carnegie Mellon University. We are the world’s leading trusted authority dedicated to improving the security and resilience of computer systems and networks and are a national asset in the field of cybersecurity.
