Government CERT (GovCERT.CZ) and teams like the CSIRT play a key role protecting critical information infrastructure and important information systems according to the Law on Cybersecurity (181/2014 Sb.) and its implementation regulations. Every country that connects its critical systems to the internet must be able to effectively mitigate security threats, react to incidents, coordinate their resolution, and effectively prevent incidents.

These teams also act as a source of security information and help state bodies, organizations, and citizens. They also play a key role in internet security education.

Bodies and individuals subject to the Law on Cybersecurity must fulfil certain obligations to the Government CERT team and according to section 3 paragraph a) and b), bodies and individuals fulfil obligations specifically to the national CERT team. The CZ.NIC organization operates under the auspices of the national CERT team.
