Non-technical cyber security exercise for stronger institutions and cyber-resilient infrastructure in Georgia

Georgia has been a target of large-scale cyber incidents numerous times The last one occured in October 2019 and targeted websites and servers of public institutions, private sector, academia, NGOs and other important bodies. For Georgia as a potential NATO Member State, the issue of cyber-security is crucial to address to promote stability and security.

The project consists of planning, organizing and conducting a tailored two-day non-technical table-top cyber security exercise for decision-makers from various relevant state institutions in Georgia. The table-top presents the audience with a real scenario of a cyber crisis and offers a hands-on experience to solve the cyber crisis in a limited period of time. This project aims to provide deeper understanding of strategic, political, diplomatic, economic and military context of a cyber crisis, raised awareness, enhanced readiness and coordination among key stakeholders at the national level and promoting a whole-of-government approach in cyberspace.

The project is led by The National Cyber and Information Security Agency (NÚKIB), the central administrative body for cyber security, including the protection of classified information in information and communication systems and cryptographic protection.
