Exercise Locked Shields tested NATO’s cyber defence mettle against a series of complex and aggressive cyber attacks.
A team of nearly 40 NATO cyber security experts competed from 9 until 12 April in Locked Shields 2019, the world’s largest live-fire cyber exercise. More than 1,000 international cyber defenders and decision-makers took part in the drills. Organised by the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence in Estonia, the event used a game-based approach, enabling participants to take on roles in fictitious response teams. Their goal was to assess a crisis situation, maintain services and defend networks that have fallen victim to cyber attacks. In the exercise scenario, the fictitious country Berylia faced coordinated cyber attacks against its civilian infrastructure. The job of NATO’s team was to help contain the damage and protect the networks from further attacks. The exercise took place in a laboratory environment. Footage includes various shots of experts on computers, as well as shots of various IT equipment involved in the exercise, filmed by the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence in Estonia.
