The first ‘Cybersecurity Week’ to be held in Azerbaijan included a seminar on ‘CERT services: cyber threats and protection methods’, on 14 March at the Institute of Information Technology of ANAS. It is no coincidence that the CERT event was held at the Institute. The first CERT in Azerbaijan was developed by the Institute of Information Technology of ANAS to ensure the security of the AzScienceNet research and education network and, currently, it operates under the name AzScienceCERT.
The main objective of the seminar was to discuss achievements and challenges ahead for the CERT (Computer Emergency Response Team) services operating in the country, and to exchange information between relevant authorities on incidents, the prospects for international cooperation, and integration into relevant international organisations.
