The purpose of the ITU-T Manual on Security in Telecommunications and Information Technology is to provide a broad introduction to the security work of ITU-T. It is directed towards those who have responsibility for, or an interest in, information and communications security and the related standards, and those who simply need to gain a better understanding of ICT security issues and the corresponding ITU-T Recommendations.



Cybersecurity and incident response

Cyber-attacks are widespread and cause a complex range of problems to users, service providers and operators. Effective response to such attacks is dependent on understanding the source and nature of the attack and sharing information with monitoring agencies. Countering cyber-attacks by technical means requires the development of a framework and requirements for detecting, protecting against, mitigating the effects of, and recovering from cyber-attacks, and addressing important technical issues facing network operators, enterprises, and governments. ITU-T has already developed a number of Recommendations on the efficient sharing of security and vulnerability information across domains and is developing solutions to support telecommunications/ICT accountability, incident response, threat monitoring and risk assessment.
