ENISA's initial findings from Europe's biggest ever cyber security test show that the exercise was a success.

Cyber Europe 2012 was a day-long simulated cyber attack on Europe's critical information infrastructures. It was used to analyse how participating countries' and private sector organisations would cooperate in the event of a real large-scale attack.

ENISA's headline observations from the "hot wash" exercise review session held today (05/10/2012) are:

  • There was frequent cooperation and information exchange between public and private sector organisations
  • Public-Private cooperation structure differed per country
  • Some countries responded by upscaling their national crisis cells/crisis plans/crisis structures
  • Some countries suffered from real incidents besides the CE2012 exercise
  • Familiarity with procedures is crucial for building a fast and effective response capability across Europe
  • There is a need for close understanding between players and a need to be able to communicate quickly with key contacts in national authorities and the private sector
  • The inclusion of private sector organisations as players was an excellent addition. Their input and experience helped build realistic scenarios and make exercise highly effective on the day. (Most Critical Information Infrastructure is owned by the private sector.)  Overall, there were approx. 60 banks and 60 ISPs taking part in the various countries. 
  • Simulations were highly realistic. Players were under pressure so as to assess how this would affect cooperation  
  • Conclusions from the exercise will be considered by the European Commission and Member States in drafting Europe's Cyber Security Strategy
  • ENISA plans to produce its Cyber Europe 2012 exercise report by the end of the year
