American Security to be Tested by Simulated Cyber Attack

The US will be hit by a simulated cyber attack on February 16th. The attack will test how the US Government would respond to a massive real-time cyber attack. Several former government officials will take place in the event called “Cyber Shockwave”. The event should give our officials a dry run at responding to a state sponsored network attack.

“This month’s planned cyber-security simulation comes amid growing concerns over state-sponsored attacks against critical IT assets. The recent cyber-attacks against Google and more than 30 technology companies allegedly by operatives based out of China have highlighted what many say is the need for a formal U.S. policy for deterring and responding to such attacks.”
