About CERT-In

The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) is a national initiative to tackle emerging challenges in the area of information security and country level security risks and vulnerabilities. The CERT-In operates under the auspices of, and with authority delegated by, the Department of Information Technology, Ministry of Communications & Information Technology, Government of India. The mission of CERT-In is to enhance the security of India’s communications and information infrastructure through proactive action and effective collaboration.

The CERT-In has created a panel of ‘IT Security Auditors’ for auditing, including vulnerability assessment and penetration testing of computer systems & networks of various organizations of the Government, critical infrastructure organizations and those in other sectors of Indian economy.

As part of its efforts to create a panel of qualified IT Security Auditing organisations, CERT-In had adopted a stringent evaluation process with a prime motive to verify and assess the technical skills and capabilities of the participating organizations to be able to perform information security audits from a people, process and technology perspective.

The Technical Evaluation Committee (TEC) had conducted an Online Practical Skills Test by asking participating companies to conduct a Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Test on a web server hosted by CERT-In. The participating organizations had to identify at least 90% of the vulnerabilities present to be successful in the test.

Qadit Systems was first empanelled by CERT-In as a qualified Information Systems Auditor as early as April 2006. The list of empanelled auditors can be found at http://www.cert-in.org.in/panelofauditors.htm
