With the idea of helping protect local critical infrastructure from cyber threats, teams within the National Guard called “Computer Network Defender or (CND Team)” and Air Guard Hunter Groups have been created. The role of the 21st century minuteman now includes helping defend resources throughout the state for cyber threats through CND and Hunter Teams and they will be working alongside practitioners and infrastructure owners in this event.
By participating in a scenario game environment, participants reinforce practical skills and build relationships with other practitioners in their area. Participants for the Po′oihe Cyber Defense Exercise will be given a scenario of critical infrastructure in a business setting to defend as a “Blue Team” while other professionals from government, industry, and students from Universities Computing and Software Systems will attack the infrastructure as a “Red Team.” The goal of this exercise is to encourage proper Information Assurance and Cybersecurity practices and provide a learning forum for participants.
This will be a great event and we look forward to having your participation!
