ENISA organises cyber-exercise to boost CSIRT cooperation

On 30 January 2018, the EU Cybersecurity Agency ENISA organised ‘Cyber SOPEx’, the first cooperation exercise of the CSIRTs Network.

Published on January 30, 2018

Over 70 specialists from national CSIRTs and CERT-EU were engaged in the exercise, whose scenario revolved around cyber-incidents occurring in the maritime sector. The setup of the exercise provided the context for cooperation and development of creative ideas.

Cyber SOPEx is the first step in a series of ENISA exercises focusing on training the participants on situational awareness, information sharing, understanding roles and responsibilities and utilising related tools, as agreed by the CSIRTs Network.

The long-term goal of this project is to enhance the cooperation in operational cybersecurity within the EU.

Computer Security Incident Response Teams, also known as CSIRTs, work together within the ‘CSIRTs Network’ – an entity established by the NIS Directive to contribute to developing confidence and trust between the Member States and to promote swift and effective operational cooperation.

ENISA provides the secretariat of the CSIRTs network and actively supports the cooperation among them. The Agency organises meetings for the network, and initiates discussion by proposing diverse topics.
