Responding to current situation

The TRANSITS 1 course is the basic and among others developed by SURF in a European context for CSIRTs, and is the basic training. It dates from 2001 and has been in great demand worldwide ever since. In the process, the teaching material has been constantly updated.

Getting started with Transits 1

The following components are covered:

  • organisational aspects
  • operational aspects
  • technical background
  • legal and regulatory aspects

Attention to own input

The TRANSITS training is a full 3-day programme for 2 groups of up to 14 participants each. This gives you room for a lot of personal input and you can ask all your questions. Thanks to the cooperation with NCSC-NL, you will meet participants from all types of CSIRTs in the Netherlands; so you will get even more out of the training.

Lunch is included - you pay for any overnight stay yourself.

For whom?

Are you (or will you be) a member of the local CSIRT within your own institution? Then you are very welcome to participate. In addition, the training is excellent for security officers and ICT managers who want to know what a CSIRT entails. If you participate, we expect you to have basic knowledge of internet technology and security.


We start all training days at 9am with coffee. On days 1 and 2, we will work from 9.30 to 17.30! We conclude day 1 with a communal dinner. On day 3, we hand out certificates to all participants at the end of the day's programme, at 16.00.
