Mitigate Cybersecurity Incidents

As part of its mission, the Office of Cybersecurity and Communications (CS&C) is responsible for working with government, state and local, and private sector partners to minimize the impact of cybersecurity incidents. Two of CS&C’s  National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center components, the Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT) and United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) work to mitigate cybersecurity incidents in close coordination with public and private sector partners.

ICS-CERT provides onsite support to owners and operators of critical infrastructure, including incident response, forensic analysis, and site assessments. ICS-CERT also provides tools and training designed to increase stakeholder awareness of the threats posed to industrial control systems.
