This chapter discusses the changes that the traditional Computer Emergency Response Capability (CERT) will have to adopt in order to continue to provide value and support to the future NATO operations. As the ICT solutions become increasingly federated, cooperation between future CERTs will need to be an integral part of the operational model for any large organization or business, especially if it is considered part of critical infrastructure. Tighter integration with ICT operations and business operations in general, ensuring that cyber-attacks are detected and effectively and efficiently mitigated as a regular day-to-day activity, will continue to make CERTs relevant and highly necessary for any organization. While the name might change or disappear, the functions provided are more important than ever and no future ICT system should operate without them.
