The Centre for Critical Infrastructure Protection has launched a website.
The site, which went live at the end of August, lists alerts from hardware and software vendors.
Other sections enable alert notifications to be sent to CCIP and give a rundown on basic PC security.
CCIP was established earlier this year to provide alerts on serious threats to New Zealand’s vital infrastructure, defined by CCIP as the government, telecommunications, internet, transport, emergency services, energy and finance sectors.
The centre is modelled on CERT, the US-based Computer Emergency Response Team, but director Mike Spring says CCIP will send out high level alerts only and won’t be repeating the lower level alerts CERT and its Australian counterpart, AusCERT, send out.
