The Computer Emergency Response Team
CERT stands for ”Computer Emergency Response Team”, and we, the S-CERT, are the computer emergency response team of the German Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe (Savings Banks Financial Group). S-CERT consists of members drawn from savings banks, Landesbanken and insurers as well as IT service providers affiliated directly with the Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe.
S-CERT is a service of SIZ Informatikzentrum der Sparkassenorganisation GmbH. It serves not only members of the Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe, but other German financial institutes too.
S-CERT also provides its international partners with a central point of contact with the German finance industry, and as such, forms an important first point of contact for all IT-security-related issues.
