Baltic Cyber Shield Cyber Defence Exercise 2010 After Action Report

The aim of the exercise was to increase the understanding of the international cyber environment and to enhance international cooperation for handling technical incidents. During the exercise, six teams from Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden and NATO NCIRC attempted to defend virtual computer networks against hostile attacks.

One of the main tasks for the teams was to defend an initially insecure company network. This network also included components of SCADA systems that were used for monitoring and controlling critical information infrastructure.
The event was jointly set up by the Centre and the Swedish National Defence College with support from various Swedish institutions and the Estonian Cyber Defence League.
