National Cyber Security Drill for Critical Information Infrastructures (CIIs)

Start Time: June 25, 2019 16:00 | End Time: June 28, 2019 16:00
Location: Palms Hotel, Quatre-Bornes
Cyber risk is now one of the most commonly talked about topics as the impact of cybercrime reaches an all-time high. Heavily connected industries, such as financial services and critical national infrastructure (CNI) pose a systemic risk to the markets they serve. We are now seeing national cybersecurity incident simulation exercises being carried out by governments and/or industry associations. This helps to exercise the reaction to cybersecurity incidents, which impact various parts of the supply chain, from financial transactions to the operational technology that underpins our daily lives.
 In line with this, the Computer Emergency Response Team of Mauritius (CERT-MU), a division of the National Computer Board operating under the aegis of the Ministry of Technology, Communication & Innovation is organizing a National Cybersecurity Drill from the 25th – 28th June 2019 for the Financial Sector and the Civil Aviation Department. The main objective of the 4 days’ event is to assess the preparedness of these sectors to resist cyber threats and enable timely detection, response, and mitigation and recovery actions in the event of cyber-attacks.
The activities to be organized are as follows:
·         One-day workshop on Cyber Attack Preparedness & Response (25th June 2019)
·         Three-days Cyber Drill exercise (26th – 28th June 2019)
