The NEbraskaCERT is an organization whose mission is based upon two
pillars of excellence.
Sharing of Knowledge
1: Sharing of Knowledge:
The NEbraskaCERT's primary mission is ensuring that the worldwide
CERT Conference is held annually. This conference is designed to be the
premier outpouring of all facets of Information Security covering both
theoretical and practical aspects. The conference provides detailed
material for the working technical professional along with a coherent view
of the global strategic picture.
Additionally the NEbraskaCERT provides repositories of technical
information; links to and with other information sources; and assists in
providing both academic courses and technical certifications in
2. Applied Research
In cooperation with many varied sources the NEbraskaCERT conducts research
in the field of information security. Research results are
provided through the NEbraskaCERT's Sharing of Knowledge. The NEbraskaCERT
uses this research to create and disseminate tools and techniques for
practical information security application. Where appropriate the NEbraskaCERT may
provide security products it has developed under a fee based structure.
Proceeds go towards maintaining the NEbraskaCERT.
The NEbraskaCERT welcomes both public and private grants for
applied research. Research results are disseminated through the
appropriate mechanisms within NEbraskaCERT's Sharing of Knowledge.
As with most two legged organisms, NEbraskaCERT would fall over if it were not for the
behind the scenes work of many dedicated and talented volunteers. Without these hard working and
technically savvy individuals the Board of Directors of the NEbraskaCERT would be hard pressed
to bring to you the wonderful range of services that are available. Thanks to all of the volunteers
and other members of the NEbraskaCERT.
