|(WP2) TF-CSIRT(COMPUTER SECURITY INSTANT RESPONSE TEAM): ASIA|
31 August – 1 September, Dalian, China
A total of forty-six (46) participants from five (5) countries (Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, Cambodia, Philippines), representing fourteen (14) economies [HS2] and thirty-four (34) organizations.
- To increase the “Listed” CSIRT community in Asi@Connect
- To support incident response
- To ensure that production services (such as eduroam and eduGAIN) seamlessly interoperate with the global community
As part of APAN44 in Dalian, China, the CSIRT Asi@Connect meeting and Mini-TRANSITS workshop, were offered by GÉANT specifically to attendees from Asi@Connect beneficiary countries. While the developmental maturity level of the CSIRTs in attendance didn’t qualify for becoming “Listed” on the Trusted Introducer site, the attendees identified continuing development requirements in the following areas : building trust, capacity building & information sharing; to increase their security incident readiness and support for deployment of federated services such as eduroam® and eduGAIN™ throughout their communities.
The workshop consisted of three (3) programmes as below :
○ CSIRT Asi@Connect meeting – 31st August 2017
The meeting aimed at creating a sustainable forum for supporting the Asia/Pacific CSIRT community. This meeting gave an opportunity for the audience to meet each other and exchange the developmental challenges that they were facing.
○ Assessment of CSIRT activity in Asia Pacific – 31st August 2017
The status of R&E CSIRTs within the Asi@Connect/APAN/TEIN partnership hasn’t changed significantly since the initial proposal was developed. The following key themes emerged from the meeting: a) Building Trust; b)Capacity Building; c)Information Sharing.
○ Mini-TRANSITS, TRANSITS I and TRANSITS II in Asia Pacific – 1st September 2017
This presented a compressed version of the most general topics of the TRANSITS I course to give attendees an understanding of the operational aspects of establishing a CSIRT – with sufficient time for questions and discussion
The workshop provided the opportunity to gain a good grounding in the main aspects of establishing and working in an incident handling and response (CSIRT) team.
