Video: NATO's flagship cyber defence exercise is underway in Estonia
Cyber Coalition 21, one of the world's largest annual exercises in cyber defence, kicked off on Monday, Nov. 29, and will run through until Friday, Dec.3, 2021. Cyber defenders from all NATO Allies, as well as partners Finland, Ireland, Sweden and Switzerland, are taking part, alongside participants from industry and academia. Overall, some 1,000 people will train in this year's event, which is taking place in Tallinn, Estonia, as well as remotely, from national capitals and other locations.
The exercise tests and trains cyber experts in their ability to defend NATO and national networks. From defending against malware, through hybrid attacks involving social media, to hacks on mobile devices, the exercise has a set of challenging, realistic scenarios.
