Overview Edit

MODCERT is responsible for coordinating the U.K.'s Ministry of Defence response to computer security incidents. MODCERT is a member organisation of both the international Forum for Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST) and the Trusted Introducer (TI) scheme, which aim to provide a mechanism for computer security incident information to be shared amongst communities of interest.

MODCERT is a distributed organisation, consisting of a central Co-ordination Centre (the Joint Security Co-ordination Centre or JSyCC), and a number of Monitoring and Reporting Centres (MRCs), Warning, Advice and Reporting Points (WARPs), and Incident Response Teams (IRTs). MODCERT works closely with CSIRTUK and the GovCertUK at the national Infrastructure Security Co-ordination Centre, also known as UNIRAS.
