The team is made up of IT security experts from the main EU Institutions (European Commission, General Secretariat of the Council, European Parliament, Committee of the Regions, Economic and Social Committee). It cooperates closely with other CERTs in the Member States and beyond as well as with specialised IT security companies. CERT-EU will gradually extend its services, on the basis of the requirements of its constituency and taking into account the available competencies, resources and partnerships.
