The main activity of the project was the holding a regional Cyberdrill in November 2022.
The structure of a typical regional Cyberdrill is as follows:
- Day 1 and 2 are dedicated to capacity building sessions, or other themes, such as COP-related workshop etc.;
- Day 3 is the conference day which includes presentations and panel discussions on current issues, latest assessments, and current trends in cybersecurity threats.
- Days 4 and 5 are structured around different scenarios, which involve several incidents covering the most common types of attacks. The attack details are provided by the ITU experts to the participants through the Cyber Range platform. The participants are requested to perform their investigations and analysis on the incident and will come out with the mitigation. Through these exercises, participants are able to validate policies, plans, procedures, processes, and capabilities that enable preparation, prevention, response, recovery, and continuity of operations.
