Turkey to conduct cyber attack drills

21 January 2011, Friday /TODAY’S ZAMAN
Turkey will hold a cyber attack drill next week with the participation of more than 30 institutions.  Scheduled to take place on Jan. 25-28, the cyber security drill will be coordinated by the Information Technologies and Communication Authority (BTK), the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey’s (TÜBİTAK) Research Center for Advanced Technologies on Informatics and Information Security (BİLGEM) and the National Institute of Electronics and Cryptology Research (UEKAE).

The drill aims to prepare Turkey against the threat of cyber attacks and discover the institutions’ capabilities in dealing with attacks on their information systems. The institutions to take part in the drill include the Justice Ministry, the Prime Ministry, the National Police Department and the General Staff. Cyber warfare is defined as organized attacks on the information and communication systems of a country with economic, political or military motives. Among the goals of a cyber war are taking hold of the web sites of the state or private institutions, creating propaganda on the Internet and interfering in an institution’s critical systems, including the energy, communication, finance and security infrastructures.
