From NATO:  Between 16-18 November, NATO will conduct Cyber Coalition 2010, a cyber defence exercise that will test cyber incident response, inter-agency collaboration, and the strategic decision making processes of NATO and its member states.

The scenario of the exercise includes multiple simultaneous cyber attacks targeting NATO and NATO member states.

Cyber Coalition 2010 is a procedural cyber defence exercise that includes a number of technical elements. National cyber defence decision-making authorities, the NATO Cyber Defence Management Board and computer incident response teams from NATO and NATO nations will participate in the exercise.

Cyber Coalition 2010 is the third NATO cyber defence exercise. The first edition of the exercise in November 2008 was limited to NATO bodies. As of  2009, all NATO nations have been invited to participate.  (graphic: CCDCOE)
