The Cybersecurity Hub was established in October 2015. The Cybersecurity Hub is mandated by the National Cybersecurity Policy Framework (NCPF) which was passed by Cabinet in March 2012.

The Cybersecurity Hub is South Africa’s National Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) and strives to make Cyberspace an environment where all residents of South Africa can safely communicate, socialise, and transact in confidence. It achieves this by working with stakeholders from government, the private sector, civil society and the public with a view to identifying and countering cybersecurity threats.

The Cybersecurity Hub enhances interaction, consultations and promotes a coordinated approach regarding engagements with the private sector and civil society. As a key point of contact for cybersecurity matters, it coordinates cybersecurity response activities, and facilitates information and technology sharing.
