(Computer Emergency Response Team) – CERT can trace back its roots to the proliferation of malware and viruses. In 1988, after a computer worm shutdown a large portion of the internet, the first CERT was formed. Since then many county’s governments have amassed their own response teams(i.e US-CERT, CERT-MX).
