Subject description: warfare simulation in the digital age


Once upon a time, there were real troops on the ground for a drill, training with live ammunition; in this day and age, the fighting ground is in closed rooms full of computers and hackers trying to bring down a country, attacking its infrastructure, a simulation based on reality.

The attacks we are facing are realistic, they are well organised, so it's not just a simulation of a bunch of script kiddies who are trying to get into your network who you will detect easily

It's a reminder that they aren't just trying to protect a set of servers or PCs, but they are trying to protect a way of life for a country that relies on online services.

10 years ago in Estonia, mostly there was only the DDoS attacks—attacks that ground your systems down. But during this exercise, the DDoS is the only attack they are not allowed to do by the rules. They are trying to get inside your system, to compromise your systems, steal your data, change your data. That kind of incident wasn't around in 2007, mostly it was just DDoS attacks," said Magi of the Estonian Blue Team, who was a network system administrator at a telecoms company in the country at the time of the 2007 attacks.
