TRANSITS-I courses are aimed at new or potential computer security incident response team (CSIRT) personnel who wish to gain a good grounding in the main aspects of working in sucha a team. They cover basic incident handling and response techniques, operational policies, organisational and legal issues.

  • Operational - the incident handling process from initial reports, through triage, investigation, resolution, closure, to post-analysis, and includes practical exercises and a survey of useful tools;
  • Legal - covers areas of European legislation likely to affect CSIRTs in their work that operatives should be familiar with, including data protection, computer misuse, network monitoring, collection of evidence, and working with law enforcement agencies.
