“In February 2006 the biggest-ever “Cyber Storm” war game was held to test the nation’s hacker defenses.

According to hundreds of pages of heavily censored files obtained by the Associated Press, the $3 million, invitation-only war game simulated what the U.S. describes as plausible attacks over five days against the technology industry, transportation lines and energy utilities by anti-globalization hackers.

The government is organizing a multimillion-dollar “Cyber Storm 2,” to take place in early March.” (The Arizona Republic)
