The Cybersecurity Digital Service Infrastructure (DSI) is underpinned by the European Strategy for Cybersecurity: it provides an information sharing platform ("MeliCERTes") facilitating operational cooperation among Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs), as well as funding for CSIRTs to effectively take part in its activities.

The aim of the Action is to strengthen the know-how and capabilities of the participating national and government Computer Security Incident Response Teams/Computer Emergency Readiness Teams (CSIRTs/CERTs) by enhancing cross-border cooperation.

The Action has the following specific objectives:

- Increasing the knowledge and capacities of individual members of security teams and facilitating cooperation through staff exchanges among participating CSIRTs/CERTs
- Increasing the maturity level of individual CSIRTs/CERTs regarding new software tools by exchanging information on tools developed by individual CSIRTs/CERTs that are beneficiaries of CEF cybersecurity calls
- Increasing cross-border and cross-sector collaboration among participating CSIRTs/CERTs by engaging in team building activities related to cybersecurity
- Exchanging information about awareness-raising activities implemented by the beneficiaries of CEF cybersecurity calls and Safer Internet Centers
