Cyber Storm is a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) national-level cyber exercise that simulates a cyber crisis of national and international consequence. It remains the Nation’s most extensive cybersecurity exercise, with over a thousand players nationwide. While no actual systems are attacked during the exercise, Cyber Storm provides a venue to simulate discovery of and response to a largescale, coordinated cyber attack impacting U.S. critical infrastructure. The exercise helps assess cybersecurity preparedness; examines incident response processes, procedures, and information sharing; and identifies areas for improvement. This exercise is sponsored by the National Protection and Programs Directorate’s National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC).
This week, more than one thousand members of private industry, the federal government, and international partners begin a three-day exercise, led by the Department of Homeland Security, to improve cybersecurity coordination for the nation.
H-ISAC and certain membership as appropriate are proud to be actively supporting Cyber Storm VI in nationwide play and at Exercise Control.
