New Zealand CERT

When talking to a friend from New Zealand, I was told that New Zealand Government will only establish NZ CERT in 2009. I checked this and the finding was correct.

New Zealand is a highly developed country. There should not be resource problems such as funding and skilled workforce to support the CERT operation. The lack of a national CERT could undermine people confidence in e-commerce, online transaction and other Internet-based activities. Suffice to say this is detrimental to the long term development of a country.
