TF-CSIRT is a task force that promotes collaboration and coordination between CSIRTs in Europe and neigboring regions, while liaising with relevant organisations at the global level and in other regions.
TF-CSIRT provides a forum where members of the CSIRT community can exchange experiences and knowledge in a trusted environment in order to improve cooperation and coordination. It maintains a system for registering and accrediting CSIRTs, as well as certifying service standards.
The task force also develops and provides services for CSIRTs, promotes the use of common standards and procedures for handling security incidents, and coordinates joint initiatives where appropriate. This includes the training of CSIRT staff, and assisting in the establishment and development of new CSIRTs.
