The Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT)
The Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT) works to reduce risks within and across all critical infrastructure sectors by partnering with law enforcement agencies and the intelligence community and coordinating efforts among Federal, state, local, and tribal governments and control systems owners, operators, and vendors. Additionally, ICS-CERT collaborates with international and private sector Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) to share control systems-related security incidents and mitigation measures.

Control Systems Advisories and Reports
Alerts provide timely notification to critical infrastructure owners and operators concerning threats to critical infrastructure networks.
Advisories provide timely information about current security issues, vulnerabilities, and exploits.
We provide this newsletter as a service to personnel actively engaged in the protection of critical infrastructure assets.
|Joint Security Awareness Reports (JSARs)|
ICS-CERT coordinates with US-CERT and other partners to develop Joint Security Awareness Reports (JSARs) to provide situational awareness for the public on cybersecurity issues.
ICS-CERT Technical Information Papers (TIPs), Annual Reports (Year in Review), and 3rd-party products that ICS-CERT believes are of interest to persons engaged in protecting industrial control systems.
