The Homeland Security Department’s Cyber Storm cybersecurity exercise scheduled for next week will have a worldwide scope, an industry official said today.
Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom will join 20 companies and two U.S. government agencies, said a senior industry official who requested anonymity because of the information’s sensitive nature.
Cyber Storm will test federal and private-sector readiness for cyberattacks, particularly against critical infrastructure.
The massive exercise, scheduled for Feb. 6-10, has been planned for a long time, the official said. Participants will face realistic scenarios, the official said.
