Cyber Storm II Final Report

The National Cyber Exercise: Cyber Storm II successfully executed on March 10 – 14, 2008 at player locations across the United States, as well as in international partner locations in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. The Department of Homeland Security – National Cyber Security Division (DHS – NCSD) sponsored the exercise to improve the capabilities of the cyber incident response community, encourage the advancement of public-private partnerships within the critical infrastructure sectors, and strengthen the relationship between the federal government and its government partners at the state, local, and international levels.

This Final Report is a consolidation of findings, observations, and participant inputs gathered throughout the planning and execution phases of Cyber Storm II. It represents the informational foundation for continuing efforts to assess how those findings translate into steps that DHS and the wider player community might take to improve national cyber security in the future.
