With the continuing expansion of the Internet and its growing use by critical services, their stability and availability becomes increasingly important. Incidents such as denial of service, theft or defacing can have serious consequences in financial, reputation and legal costs.
Whenever there's a cybersecurity incident, a quick and effective response is paramount. For that purpose CSIRT.UEVORA was born.
The CSIRT.UEVORA (Computer Security Incident Response Team of University of Évora) is a team able to handle incidents related to computer security. It is composed of experts in computer security from the Serviços de Informática with the ability to find and solve these incidents.
