11 Countries Take Part in Military Cyberwarfare Exercise

750 cyber specialists have participated in Defence Cyber Marvel 2 (DCM2), the biggest military cyberwarfare exercise in Western Europe.

The biggest military cyberwarfare exercise in Western Europe took place recently in Estonia. A total of 34 teams from 11 countries took part in a live-fire cyber battle. 

Countries such as the US, UK, Japan, India, Italy, Estonia, Ukraine, Ghana, Kenya and Oman were represented by 750 experts at the Defence Cyber Marvel 2 (DCM2) exercise. Many of them participated remotely. 

The seven-day event, led by the British Army, tested the response of participants to common and complex cyber scenarios, including attacks on networks and industrial control systems (ICS). 

One scenario simulated in NATO’s CR154 cyber range involved attacks on uncrewed robotic systems, a tactic used by Russia to disrupt Ukrainian cyberspace in the early days of its invasion. 

The participating teams competed against each other and were judged based on their speed in identifying and responding to cyber threats. A team from Italy was declared the winner, followed by teams representing Estonia and the UK.
