A Bulgarian team participates in NATO’s largest cyber defense training

The biggest Cyber Defense exercise “Cyber Coalition” is being held from 28 to 30 November 2017. It involves more than 700 representatives from the Alliance member countries, NATO partner countries, as well as European Union departments. The main challenge for the doctrine is to create a real cyber environment in which to test the participants’ professional skills as well as the procedures for communication and coordination between countries.

In the three-day exercise, the Republic of Bulgaria participates with a joint team involving representatives of state structures, the business and the academic community, under the general direction of the Ministry of Defense. The main solving tasks are in the context of hybrid scenarios related to attacks on social networks, attacks against mobile devices, malware protection, and so on.
