The National Technical Authority
for Information Assurance


GovCertUK is the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) for UK Government. We assist public sector organisations in the response to computer security incidents and provide advice to reduce the threat exposure. We gather data from all available sources to monitor the general threat level. For these reasons the early reporting of incidents and attempted attacks is highly recommended.

To assist in the identification and categorisation of an event please read GovCertUK's Incident Response Guidelines (PDF 148KB - v1.2, 19 Jun 2013) for further information and guidance.

Please contact GovCertUK directly about any suspected incidents
We regularly publish alerts and advisories to inform and alert security professionals to current threats. To be added as a recipient of these documents, please email us.
