Largest Simulated Cyber Attack To Date

Orome1 noted that the government will be running
simulated cyber attacks as part of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cyber Storm III exercise. It says “The exercise will be controlled from the Secret Service headquarters, where organizers from various agencies will be sending out ‘exercise injects,’ information that a player will receive that indicates that a certain event has taken place as part of the narrative set up by the organizers. This goes a bit beyond a paper narrative, including fake log data, drives that may contain fake malware, and fake event history, and is dynamic, meaning that it can change dependent on the actions the players take.” …which makes me wonder how effective this test would actually be.
