We handle incidents to assure the academic network security.
Security Incident Response Center
At RNP, we play the role of ensuring the security of our network and connected institutions. To this end, we created the Security Incident Response Center – CAIS.
With over 20 years of experience, CAIS was one of the first security incident response groups to operate nationally in the detection, resolution and prevention of incidents throughout the academic network and its user institutions.
