Apr 12!! Operation Cyberstorm VI!! 3 Days Of War Games in DC, for Government to practice Response To Serious Cyberattacks!
That kind of war-gaming has been playing out this week in a windowless conference room at the Secret Service headquarters in Washington, D.C., in an exercise officials call "Cyber Storm VI."


The biannual drill, run by the Department of Homeland Security, involves more than 1,000 participants (or "players") around the globe, including federal, state and local law enforcement authorities, and other government agencies.

Jeanette Manfra, the assistant secretary for cybersecurity and communications at DHS says the U.S. faces "increasingly severe and significant cyber incidents affecting the public and the private sector." The Cyber Storm exercise, she says, provides "a safe opportunity to simulate discovery of and response to a large-scale, coordinated cyberattack."


She says no actual systems are attacked during the exercise, and most of the participants "play" from their normal work locations. She said players are not trying to solve technical issues relating to an attack, but rather to work on the steps they take to collaborate with each other.

It's not clear what the exact nature is of the threat the players are facing. Not wanting to publicly give the game away, Manfra would say only that the scenario this year involves critical manufacturing, transportation and IT and communications sectors.
