The best team at this year’s international cyber defence exercises Locked Shields 2016 came from Slovakia. The team of Slovak military experts withstood hacker attacks and as the only one was praised for great defence, the SITA newswire reported, referring to the website of the Slovak Armed Forces.

The Slovak team also scored well when dealing with various additional and legal tasks and answering journalists’ questions. In the final evaluation it placed first and received several awards for its performance, SITA wrote.

During the exercise the soldiers used unique defence software, completely developed by a military security technician.

The Locked Shields 2016 exercise is the biggest and most advanced international live-fire cyber defence exercise in the world. It has been organised since 2010 by the Tallinn-based NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence and focuses on training the security experts who protect national IT systems on a daily basis, according to the website.

The teams are tasked to maintain the networks and services of a fictional country, Berylia, under intense pressure. This includes handling and reporting incidents, solving forensic challenges as well as responding to legal, media and scenario injects.
