DFi obtains the use of the CERT label for its cybersecurity expertise

Obtaining the CERT reference label is a new stage in the development of DFi’s expertise in cybersecurity.

CERT is a registered trademark belonging to Carnegie Mellon University which refers to players offering value-added services in the field of incident response and cybersecurity, and who support their customers in their process of improving the security of their information systems.

A label that enjoys international recognition and guarantees a level of expertise in cybersecurity-related activities.

An international reference in the field, obtaining this label meets strict requirements. It has currently been awarded to just over 300 organisations around the world, which constitute an information exchange network.

The CERT label is thus a guarantee of DFi’s expertise in the following fields

  • Incident response
  • Intrusion detection
  • Cybersecurity consulting
  • Awareness and training
  • Management of vulnerabilities
  • Development of specific tools
  • Technology watch
  • Security audits
  • Configuration and maintenance of security-related tools, applications and infrastructure
  • Business continuity plans (BCP) and disaster recovery plans (DRP)

Mission of the CERT-DFi cell (also called CSIRT or Computer Security Incident Response Team): :

At the operational level, the priority tasks of the CERT-DFi are the following:

  • Detecting incidents in information systems and centralising incident-related requests for assistance
  • Ensure the processing of alerts and the response to incidents (identification, containment, eradication, resolution)
