A computer security incident is any adverse event whereby some aspect of a computer system is threatened viz. loss of confidentiality, disruption of data or system integrity, denial of service availability.
Any organisation or corporate using computer systems and networks may be confronted with security breaches or computer security incidents.
By reporting such computer security incidents to CERT-In the System Administrators and users will receive technical assistance in resolving these incidents. This will also help the CERT-In to correlate the incidents thus reported and analyse them; draw inferences; disseminate up-to-date information and develop effective security guidelines to prevent occurrence of the incidents in future.
