CSIRTnz initiative suspended

The NZITF has suspended its efforts to create CSIRTnz. In light of the work the Government is putting in to create a national CERT, we have agreed with funding partners to suspend any work on CSIRTnz, and released all committed funds from third parties. We are now focussed on working with the Government to ensure that the national CERT provides an appropriately resourced, capable and trusted incident response capability to all of New Zealand as early as possible in 2016.
