Qatar's Computer Emergency Response Team (Q-CERT) at the Ministry of Transport and Communications (MoTC) provides this service to everyone to minimize the risk associated with information security incidents. Q-CERT’s Incident Response service provides the capability to address and respond to security incidents that may occur as a result of using technology.
If an information security incident occurs in Qatar, anybody can approach Q-CERT to take advantage of its expertise in handling such incidents and minimize any damage that may result from the incident. Q-CERT has a formal, focused, and coordinated approach to respond to information security incidents and can provide organizations with a roadmap to build an effective incident response capability.
Q-CERT is readily accessible and approachable with 24/7 availability on phone, email and online presence (refer to Incident Response Guidelines). Upon request, Q-CERT can help you respond to a security incident and guide restoration through effective analysis.
Through its international collaborations, Q-CERT, along with regional Computer Emergency Response Teams, can provide faster responses if the attack has originated from a foreign source. With Q-CERT’s help, organizations can respond quickly and effectively to information security incidents, thereby reducing loss, and earlier restoration of normal operations.
