SA1.2N O-N-9 Security Good participation from NGI participants in CSIRT (including IRTF as Duty Contact), SPG and national improvements. Effort is moderate (18PM over 4 years), but ideally could be increased to the level of one full-time person for local and NGI security. Effort is being put into work to improve and simplify security-related items for operators and users. 4 -

NA2.3N Policy Development NGI participants are contributing to SPG, other EGI policy (D2.6) and other bodies (IGTF). Funding is constrained (3pm over 4 years of EGI-InSPIRE): sufficient for Ireland's current effort, but it limits plans for further policy development. It will be necessary to allocate effort for policy in future funding. 3 Policy task leaders could solicit input from NGIs.
NA2.2N E-N-2 Dissemination NGI participants have made some progress, updating web sites and highlighting EGI in relevant national presentations. Electronic and real-world dissemination could be improved but effort is constrained (3pm over 4 years of EGI-InSPIRE) and there is no additional funding for real-world dissemination materials. This activity should have greater priority (and hence effort) nationally. 2 Task leaders could remind NGIs of available resources and approaches, and encourage effort in this area.
