Exercise Cyber Star adds complex cyber attack scenarios to strengthen Singapore’s readiness

A widespread compromise of industrial control systems in critical services sectors here was among several more complex scenarios tested for the first time at a nation-wide cyber-security exercise.

In its third run, Exercise Cyber Star’s more than 250 participants from the public and private sectors scrambled to isolate the cyber attack and restore the operations of critical services including healthcare, land transport and energy.

Led by the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA), Exercise Cyber Star is a whole-of-government effort to test Singapore’s cyber-incident management and emergency response plans.
