For the HLRN alliance the computer security is an important topic which allows to control the access to compute resources and research data. The complex of topics is accounted by three separated instances which work coordinated at their specific tasks.
Within the CERT (computer emergency response team) members of both operational sites work together. Emergency events are managed by deciding about urgent actions to improve the security situation. Such dicisions can be made separately by each of the operational sites, too.

The BI is composed of members from the operational sites as well as more experts from other data centers from the HLRN states.
