The National Network of Cybersecurity Operations Centres (RNS) is an initiative promoted by the National Cryptologic Centre to integrate and coordinate the Cybersecurity Operations Centres (SOC) of the public sector. Its ultimate aim is to articulate collaboration and the agile and effective exchange of information between all the SOCs in the public sector and the different Public Administrations (National Government, Autonomous Regions and Local Entities) in order to improve, in this way, the national capabilities for defence, detection and response to possible cyber-incidents.
The deployment of this network is a response to the EU's Cybersecurity Strategy for the Digital Decade (2020), which points out the need to create a European network of SOCs based on Artificial Intelligence to improve the detection of cyberthreats. For this reason, the National SOC Network, in addition to coordinating the exchange of information between national SOCs, will act as a link between the different European SOCs.
The objective of the National SOC Network is to coordinate and promote the exchange of technical information between the Cybersecurity Operations Centres of the national public sector.
The first step to join the RNS is to have a Cybersecurity Operations Centre. Public sector organizations interested in its deployment can request the assistance and collaboration of the CCN-CERT.
By forming part of the RNS, the member organizations will have real-time access to information on cyber threats, which will allow the detection and early warning of possible incidents.
