In 2014, ENISA organised with the EU Member States and EFTA countries the third pan-European cyber exercise, Cyber Europe 2014. For the first time this exercise tested all three levels of incident response: technical, operational and strategic.
During the first phase of the exercise, conducted on 28-29 April 2014, participants across Europe dealt with 16 different challenging technical cybersecurity incidents. The second phase of the exercise was held on 30 October 2014, 29 EU and EFTA countries cooperated by using the EU-Standard Operational Procedures (EU-SOPs) to establish a common situation picture. The third phase of CE2014, which took place on 24-25 February 2015, focused on strategic-level cyber crisis management.
