More than 1,000 cyber defenders fended off simulated cyber attacks during Cyber Coalition 22, one of the largest cyber exercises in the world.
NATO has concluded its largest annual cyber defence exercise, Cyber Coalition 2022, which immersed more than 1,000 cyber defenders from 32 countries into a scenario that tested their ability to prevent attacks and intrusions.
This annual exercise is led by NATO’s USA-based Allied Command Transformation. This year’s iteration experimented with using artificial intelligence to counter cyber threats, standardizing information-sharing during a cyber crisis, and exploiting intelligence to improve shared situational awareness. It is one of the largest cyber exercises in the world.
Twenty-six NATO Allies attended Cyber Coalition 22, as well as partners Finland, Sweden, Georgia, Ireland, Japan, Switzerland, with participants from the European Union, industry and academia attending as well.
Footage includes shots of participants during the exercise, as well as an interview with the exercise director.

The best part about this exercise, in my opinion, is that it is a collaborative and cooperative environment, and it is not a competition. There's a distinction there because what we're trying to do is share information between everybody here and build those real-life relationships so that if and when they're called upon, they know who to call.” (03:13) SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH) – United States Navy Commander Charles Elliott, exercise director “Cyberspace is important because it affects every aspect of our lives, both in the civilian life and in military life. And really, you can't separate the two. Everything from online banking to your emails to everything else you do, has an online presence which affects your real-world presence. Like it or not, the cyber world and the real world are coming closer and closer together every day.”
