By way of Grand-Ducal decree, GOVCERT has been mandated to act as the official national point of contact for national and international governmental CERTs. It performs this function under the name of NCERT.LU (National CERT). NCERT.LU gathers and disseminates information about security incidents, which affect information and communication systems in Luxembourg. It also serves as interlocutor for natural and legal persons, entities and bodies, both national and international.
Once it has received information, NCERT.LU must convey it to the CERTs in charge of the affected victim’s sector or, if no sectorial CERT exists, directly to the victim. NCERT.LU will also advise about the specific points of contact according to the targeted sector.
