Cyber Storm finished

by Nikola Strahija on February 11th, 2006 Government claims the test cyberattack was successful.

-Preparedness against a cyberattack requires partnership and coordination between all levels of government and the private sector, Homeland Security Under Secretary for Preparedness George Foresman said in a statement Friday. -Cyber Storm provides an excellent opportunity to enhance our nation's cyberpreparedness and better manage risk.'

The agency plans to gather responses from all the government, public and private participants and to issue a final report on Cyber Storm performance, due this summer.

The main "control center" for the game was located at U.S. Secret Service headquarters in Washington, D.C. Within the U.S. government, seven cabinet-level departments, including Justice, Commerce, Defense and Treasury, along with the U.S. military, the CIA, the National Security Agency, the FBI and the American Red Cross, participated. Among the other private businesses onboard were Intel, Microsoft, Symantec, McAfee and VeriSign. Representatives from the governments of the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Canada were also involved.
