The Western European and North American mutual defence pact organisation NATO
has concluded an annual cyber defence exercise, defending a fictitious network
against incoming attacks.
Called Locked Shields 2013, the exercise involved 250 people in eleven
locations around Europe, under the auspices of the NATO Cooperative Cyber
Defence Centre of Excellence (CCD-COE), the Finnish and Estonian Defence Forces
and two government IT security organisations in the Baltic country.
This year's exercise took place between Thursday and Friday last week,
Australian time. A spokesperson for the CCD-COE told iTnews the exercise
involved defending a partially pre-built network against attacks.
"For two days the Red Team launched attacks against the Blue Teams’ networks
and they had to defend, report and keep their systems running.
