Our innovative research, for which the CERT Program is internationally known, enables U.S. government agencies responsible for cyber security, U.S. military agencies, and industry to protect, detect, and respond to attacks, accidents, and failures on networked systems.
The CERT Program's research strategy is to build and maintain a technical center of excellence and innovation that considers the entire software life cycle (from requirements through development, deployment, operations, maintenance, and forensics) to
- identify new technologies, development practices, and management practices that would significantly improve networked systems security and enterprise resiliency
- mature these technologies and practices
- apply these technologies to meet the needs of the program’s stakeholders
- transition these technologies into widespread use
