Working Remotely

CERT NZ works alongside other government agencies and organisations, to support businesses, organisations and individuals affected by cyber security incidents.


With the current COVID-19 pandemic rapidly unfolding around the world there are a number of things that we need to be aware of in the online world. CERT NZ is closely monitoring the situation and preparing regular advice to help individuals and organisations alike in being resilient.

Legal Help and Advice

Many organisations are making the move to cloud services like Office 365, which negates the need for a VPN client, meaning more staff can work remotely at any given time. Whilst cloud services bring about many benefits, it does also change the security landscape for an organisation. These guides include key things to consider when using cloud services.

Through this difficult time, please report anything cyber-suspicious to CERT NZ – the more information we have the better we can provide advice to other New Zealanders.

CERT NZ encourages people to use the online reporting form not the 0800 number due to pressure on the call centre resulting from COVID-19 related queries.
