Somalia Computer Emergency Response Team/Coordination Center (SOMCERT/CC) is the first national CERT in Somalia. It was established in May 2019 as a section within the Cyber Security Department of the National Communications Authority (NCA). The primary goal of SOMCERT/CC is to secure Somalia’s cyberspace, and critical infrastructure and provide an official point of contact for handling cybersecurity incidents in the Somali Internet community.
SOMCERT/CC is a full and active member of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation – Computer Emergency Response Teams (OIC-CERT). SOMCERT/CC has very close collaboration with the Arab Regional Cyber Security Center (ARCC), Africa CERT, and International Telecommunications Union (ITU).
