The National Cyber Security Centre of Ireland (NCSC) engages in a comprehensive set of tasks around cyber security, with primary focus on securing Government networks and securing Critical National Infrastructure and encompasses the State’s National/Governmental Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT-IE).
The initial focus of the NCSC and CSIRT-IE is to provide incident response services to Government networks and the main Critical National Infrastructure providers.
Our strategy details how the NCSC will engage with its primary stakeholders and outline the mandate for the NCSC as a whole. The mandate for the NCSC will include:
- Activities to reduce the vulnerability of critical systems and networks within the State to incidents and cyber-attacks;
- Effective response when such attacks occur;
- Establishing and maintaining cooperative relationships with national and international partners.
