Cyberdrills

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Cyberdrills

ITU assists in improving cybersecurity readiness, protection, and incident response capabilities of countries by conducting cyberdrills at regional and national level. The ITU regional cyberdrills are designed with a dual purpose: as a platform for cooperation, information sharing, and discussions on current cybersecurity issues, as well as to provide hands-on exercise for national Computer Incident Response Teams (CIRTs) / Computer Security Incident Response Teams (C​SIRTs)​​.
 

​​​O​BJECTIVES​

The ITU regional cyberdrills are annual events which serve the purpose of:

•  Enhancing cybersecurity capacity and capabilities through 
   regional collaborations and cooperation; 
•  Enhancing the awareness an​​d the capability of countries 
   to participate and to contribute to the development and 
   deployment of a strategy for defeating a cyber threat;
•  Strengthening international cooperation between Member
   States to ensure continued collective efforts against cyber
   threats;
•  Enhancing Member States’ incident response capabilities 
   and communication;
•  Assisting Member States to develop and implement  
   operational procedures to respond better to various cyber
   incidents, identify improvements for future planning and  
   CIRT processes​ and operational procedures.​





 




​STRUCTU​RE AND FORMAT

 
Day 1 and 2 are dedicated to capacity building sessions, or other themes, such as COP-related workshop etc.​​
 
Day 3 is the conference​​ day which includes presentations and panel discussions on current issues, latest assessments, and current trends in cybersecurity threats.
                   
Days 4 and 5 are structured around different scenarios, which involve several incidents covering the most common types of attacks. The attack details are provided by the ITU experts to the participants through the Cyber Range platform. The ​participants are requested to perform their investigations and analysis on the incident and will come out with the mitigation. Through these exercises, participants are able to validate policies, plans, procedures, processes, and capabilities that enable preparation, prevention, response, recovery, and continuity of operations.
