Organisers are hailing the first pan-European cyber security exercise as 
a successful ’cyber stress test’ of key internet infrastructure systems.

Cyber Europe 2010 brought together 150 information experts from 70 
public bodies in 22 countries around Europe on 4 November to run an 
exercise in involving 320 simulated cyber-security incidents.

The security incidents simulated involved attempts by hackers to knock 
critical online services online or to degrade overall internet 
availability. Blue team participants included Computer Emergency 
Response Teams and regulators pitted against a red team of "hackers" in 
much the same scenario as earlier US cyberwar exercises, such as Cyber 

Interim findings and recommendations from the exercise, released on 
Wednesday, said the exercise was a big step "towards building trust at 
pan-European level" while noting that more co-operation and a greater 
exchange of ideas is still needed.
