Member States to set up national alert platforms

Indicator Status Evidence
Has the Member State set up a national alert platform? Yes All state institutions, local governments, owners or legal processors of the IT critical infrastructure have to inform (are obliged to inform) CERT.LV on any IT security incidents in their constituency. CERT.LV has developed alert scheme and standard operating procedures for identifying and alerting on IT security incidents (case specific or national level lists available).
Does it serve as a one-stop-shop for the public who can play an active role in reporting illicit online activity? Yes Any individual is advised to inform CERT.LV on any IT security incidents or in cases of abuse or illegal content – Netsafe.lv or CERT.LV. These two actors are being considered as one-stop shop for the public. If necessary reports are being exchanged among both partners.
Does it compile statistics on alerts, thus tracking the development of cybercrime at national level? Yes CERT.LV releases anonymysed public quarterlies with statistical data, which include also data received as described above. Statistics on reports received and processed by Net-Safe Latvia Safer Internet Centre are published on Centre's website: http://www.drossinternets.lv/page/102
