The first pan-European exercise on Critical Information Infrastructure Protection (CIIP) CYBER EUROPE 2010 was
organised by EU Member States (MS), facilitated by the European Network and Information Security Agency
(ENISA) and supported by the Joint Research Centre (JRC).
The objective of the exercise was to trigger communication and collaboration between countries in Europe to try
to respond to large-scale attacks. During the CYBER EUROPE 2010 exercise, experts from the participating public
bodies of European countries worked together to counter simulated attempts by hackers to paralyse the Internet
and critical online services across Europe.
The simulation exercise was based on a fictitious scenario.
