DHS 'Cyber Storm' Exercise to Take Place in Feb.

Posted by Xavier Ashe on February 3, 2006

From Feb. 6 to Feb. 10, the
Department of Homeland Security will examine how well it interacts with
other federal agencies and private companies during
cybersecurity-related events, Government Computer News reports.

The exercise, deemed Cyber Storm, will include
the Information Technology Information-Sharing and Analysis Center
(ISAC).  The government agencies and organizations involved will test
DHS’ plan for responding to cybersecurity incidents.

“This will be the first-ever cyber-focused exercise for DHS,” the IT ISAC posted on its website.

A number of cybersecurity solution vendors will
also be involved, including Cisco Systems, Citadel Security Software,
Computer Associates International, Computer Sciences Corp., Microsoft,
Symantec and VeriSign.
