mnemonic joins the Norwegian National Security Authority's quality scheme for Incident Response

The Norwegian National Security Authority (NSM) confirms that mnemonic meets the authorities’ requirements in the new quality scheme for Incident Response

“In its application, mnemonic documented good practice and skills in Incident Response. We think it is very positive that mnemonic joins us, confirming the scheme’s relevance as a preventive security measure for Norwegian society. The experiences we will get together will be of great assistance to further develop the scheme and its working methods", says Kjetil Nilsen, Director of NSM.

NSM's quality scheme intends to help organisations and companies find security providers that meet strict requirements for Incident Response.

Last year mnemonic's Incident Respons team logged more than 25,000 hours, and so far in 2017 this figure is over 30,000.

“mnemonic has over 15 years of experience with Incident Response and has handled some of the most serious incidents in Norway. Therefore, it was only natural for us to join the program. We are very positive about NSM's quality scheme and look forward to strengthening our already good cooperation with NSM", says Tønnes Ingebrigtsen, CEO of mnemonic.

In addition, the parties are already working together in the mnemonic-led research project Semi-Automated Cyber Threat Intelligence (ACT), as project partners in the Oslo Analytics research project at the University of Oslo, and at the board of directors at CCIS.

Collaboration across borders 

"Partnerships between public, private, academia and police authorities are important for mnemonic, and to strengthen both the Incident Response and security community in Norway," says Tønnes Ingebrigtsen.

mnemonic also collaborates with several international organisations on Incident Response, including Europol European Cybercrime Centre (EC3), CERT-EU and Global Cyber Alliance.

mnemonic is an active part of the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST), and the only private Norwegian CERT in the European Trusted Introducer network, which aims to create collaboration between Incident Response teams in Europe and beyond.
