Our InfraGard chapter was represented at the recent Cyber Guard Prelude event that was designed to help the state prepare for a cyberattack. The state emergency operations center was activated on May 24th with agency participation from across the region. The exercise focused on what would happen if our state were to deal with cyberattacks on critical infrastructure in multiple jurisdictions. How would transportation be disrupted? How would power outages be handled? Is there a potential for mass injuries or casualties?
Chapter President Eddy Cruz represented InfraGard at the event:
“The exercise was great and it was very educational to see how the EOC conducts it’s business. Also the injects regarding Cyber were done very well. The amount information available to the players seemed realistic, and the timing of the injects created a good sense of urgency.”
