International CyberEx 2016
Teams by country
The Spanish National Cybersecurity Institute (INCIBE), the Organization of American States (OAS) and the Spanish National Centre for Critical Infrastructure Protection (CNPIC) put the first edition of the International CyberEx in place. The purpose of International CyberEx is to run a cyberexercise within the Member States of the Organization of American States (OAS) that will allow the strengthening of the capacities to respond to cyber incidents, as well as improved collaboration and cooperation against such incidents. This exercise focused directly on a technical safety profile with high expertise in the field of Information and Communications Technology (ICT).
The cyberexercise was conducted in Capture The Flag (CTF) format. This format is based on a cyber security competition model and is designed to serve as a training exercise that allows providing participants with experience in monitoring intrusion and working on reaction capabilities to similar cyber attacks that happen in the real world. Jeopardy style competitions usually involve several categories of problems, each of which contains a variety of questions with different values. The teams, at an 8-hour session compete to be the first to solve the most points, but they do not directly attack each other.
Potential participating countries were the 34 OAS Member States and OAS observer countries that could become guests. Participation by countries (with a maximum total of 45 teams) allowed the internal configuration by each country of a team that included professionals from various fields and strengthening collaboration between institutions. The final selection of the teams was made by INCIBE and the OAS Cyber Security Program.
The default language for the cyberexercise will be English.Download information
