CERT NZ works to help New Zealand better understand and stay resilient to cyber security threats.

We support businesses, organisations and individuals who are affected (or may be affected) by cyber security incidents. We providing trusted and authoritative information and advice, while also collating a profile of the threat landscape in New Zealand.

CERT NZ’s primary goal is to improve cyber security in New Zealand, which means:

  • an increased comprehension of the threat landscape
  • better avoidance of incidents, and
  • reducing the impact of incidents.

As part of the international network of CERTs, we have access to information on potential or real-time cyber-attacks. This helps us work towards New Zealand’s cyber resilience goals and play our part in the global effort to improve cyber security.

Established in April 2017, CERT NZ is a key component of New Zealand’s Cyber Security Strategy, contributing to the delivery of the Strategy’s vision of a confident and secure digital New Zealand.
