Please bear with us. After a long time of operating on a pure volunteer level supporting the Gibraltar business community and the Government of Gibraltar, it is time to launch the dedicated cert.gi web presence. The dedicated site will provide a threat and attack feed, live communication with the duty incident handler and practical information and guidance on what to do in the event of a computer emergency.
The Gibraltar CERT (Computer Emergency Response Team) was established as a volunteer effort in 2017 by the Security Operations Team within Hedgehog Security to address the need for a CERT for businesses and government agencies within Gibraltar. Today, we deal with an average of 7 incidents a month. These range from targeted phishing attacks that the recipient thinks they have fallen for through to full breaches.
We currently operate two full-time desks in the Hedgehog Security Operations Center, one of which is manned 24x7x365. The CERT is headed up by Peter Bassill, who is the CERT manager.
