Cyber Defense Exercises and their Role in Cyber Warfare
Keywords:cyber defense exercises, cyber-attack, cyber terrorism, cyber warfare, cyber espionage, information assurance
AbstractThe threat of cyber-attacks is increasing with the access to PC’s and Internet of a larger number of people around the world. Although the Internet provides a large number of advantages, it can also be used as a cyber-weapon in order to serve the interests of counties, political and economic groups or individual. The cyber-attacks of today are capable to disable the manufacturing of nuclear bombs of a country. Thus, there is an increasing demand for IT security specialists. Cyber-defense exercises (CDX) are by far the most complex and up to date methods of training the next generation of IT security specialists.
