CybExer Technologies hosted the live-fire cyber training for Estonian banks on its proprietary cyber range. The participants from SEB Estonia, Swedbank Estonia, LHV, and Coop Estonia took on the experienced CybExer red teamers to defend the systems against cyber attacks in simulated environment.
The event was organised by Estonian Information System Authority in order to strengthen the resilience of Estonian critical infrastructure.
The multi-day exercise trained the cyber security teams to repel the cyber attacks and coordinate their cooperation in a high-stress crises situation. The competitors in business put their backs together and solved cyber incidents side by side.
Five-member teams fought against the sophisticated attacks and patched the systems that had already been hacked. It is the first time when multiple banks have practiced together in this form. The participants were very satisfied with the training experience emphasizing the excellent build-up of the exercise and wonderfully smooth working process of the cyber range platform.
