Member States achieved the third significant step forward towards conducting the first pan European Exercise on Critical Information Infrastructure Protection (CIIP).
The workshop, the third in the series, was organised in Tallinn on 12th of May by ENISA, and kindly hosted by the Estonian Minister of Economic Affairs and Communications. The Member States reaffirmed their commitment to participate in the first pan European Exercise on CIIP in accordance with Tallinn Ministerial Declaration.
A team of planners from dedicated Member States (DK, FI, FR, HU, IT, PT, SE, UK) with the contribution of staff from ENISA and the Joint Research Centre (JRC), presented to the plenary, 22 participating countries, the draft proposals for exercise setup, the detailed scenario and the various policies. All of them are subject to final approval the next few days based on the constructive comments received.
The exercise will test the efficiency of communication between different Member States in case of incidents affecting Internet’s normal operation in all participating countries. The impact of the incident and the response needed will require the cooperation and communication different organisations (players) located in different countries. The participants will have in their disposal all currently available means for finding related contacts in different countries.
During the next period the team of planners will work on finalising details of the exercise, as well as work out on how the exercise will be evaluated. The next milestone is the fourth Workshop planned to be held on 28 June in Brussels. The actual exercise is planned to take place in early November 2010.
