CERT NZ: Get Cyber Smart

A new national Computer Emergency Response Team for New Zealand (CERT NZ) was launched in April 2017. CERT NZ’s primary role is to improve cyber security in New Zealand. It does this by raising awareness posed by cyber security threats, better avoidance of attacks and reducing the impact of incidents. It is the central place for businesses, organisations and individuals to go for help and information when they are affected (or may be affected) by cyber-attacks.

Come along to hear from CERT NZ and what they’ve seen so far in the cyber security threat landscape of New Zealand one year on from opening their doors.

As public servants, you’ll come away from this event with some advice, guidance and tips on how you can manage your own cyber security with a particular focus on privacy settings and social media at work and home to help keep yourself safe and secure online.
