Andean Region Cybersecurity Exercise

EU CyberNet and LAC4 in cooperation with the Andean Community organised the I Cybersecurity Exercise for the Andean region.

The objective of this exercise is to better understand the sub-regional cyber threat landscape, explore and practice opportunities for regional (policy level) cooperation and coordination in response to an incident with cross-border effect, as well as:

  • Test national cyber emergency preparedness and response;
  • Identify gaps between the documented emergency response process (if any) and actual behavior;
  • Test regional crisis collaboration in cyber emergencies.

The exercise contributed to improving information exchange between different participating states as well as exploring the best decision-making mechanisms for the countries in the same region that simultaneously have to respond to the same or similar cyber incidents.

Participating teams came from Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.
