dc.description.abstract Critical information infrastructure protection is vital for any nation. Many of a country’s critical systems are interconnected via an information infrastructure, such as the Internet. Should the information infrastructure be targeted by remote attacks, it would have a devastating effect on functioning of a country. Developing nations are no exception. As broadband penetration rates increase, and as Internet access speeds increase, developing nations have to implement safeguards to ensure that their information infrastructure is not target or abused by cyber attackers. Many nations implement CSIRT structures to aid in the protection of their information infrastructure. However these structures are expensive to set up and maintain. In this paper we introduce a Community-oriented Advisory, Security and Warning (C-SAW) Team, which aims to be a cost effective alternative to a CSIRT. C-SAW Teams aims to combine cost-effectiveness with the ability to mutate into a full-scale CSIRT structure over time. en_US
