TLDR:

  • CISA’s ‘Cyber Storm’ exercise involves more than 2,000 participants from government and industry to simulate a response to a large-scale cyber incident on critical infrastructure.
  • The exercise takes place as CISA updates the National Cyber Incident Response Plan, aiming to enhance information sharing and response capabilities.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is gearing up for its major “Cyber Storm” exercise, which involves over 2,000 participants from government and industry to simulate a response to a large-scale cyber incident on critical infrastructure. The exercise, occurring biannually, coincides with CISA’s efforts to rewrite the National Cyber Incident Response Plan. Officials have highlighted the importance of practicing information sharing and response strategies amidst increasing cyber threats targeting U.S. critical infrastructure networks.

The exercise will provide “players” with simulated scenarios, which they must respond to using existing policies and procedures. By testing the response mechanisms in a controlled environment, CISA aims to ensure that agencies and industry partners are well-prepared to handle real-world cyber incidents effectively. Ultimately, the goal is to strengthen collaboration and readiness within the cybersecurity community to mitigate the impact of potential cyber threats.
