ENISA would like to take stock of national and international cyber exercise efforts inside and outside the European Union.

The result of this project will be a global map of cyber exercises. The results will be discussed during ENISA's 1st International Conference on Cyber Crisis Cooperation - Cyber Exercises.

As cyber crises occur on larger scales, and grow more transnational in origin and effect, managing them effectively requires international cooperation. The world is ever more connected (by online networks and services) and therefore large-scale international cyber cooperation is required to support the information society we live in. 

Cyber exercises are an important tool to enhance, improve and focus on large scale cyber crisis cooperation. Supporting these types of EU-wide cyber security preparedness exercises is an EU priority formulated in its ‘Digital Agenda for Europe’, which aims to ensure that businesses and citizens are secure online. In addition, the report on the first Pan-European cyber exercise for public bodies, Cyber Europe 2010, underlines the need for more cyber security exercises; increased collaboration between Member States; and the importance of the private sector in ensuring security.

In this context ENISA takes stock of the national and international cyber exercise efforts inside and outside the European Union, building a global map of cyber exercises.

Please fill in the survey which has been developed for this purpose.

A further step would be to present and discuss the findings during the 1st International Conference on Cyber Crisis Cooperation - Cyber Exercises. This event will bring closer the international community and stakeholders involved in cyber exercises. More details on this event will be announced soon.
