The NCSD-Cyber Exercise Program (CEP or NCSD-CEP) improves the Nation's cyber security readiness, protection, and incident response capabilities by developing, designing, and conducting cyber exercises and workshops at the State, Federal, regional, and international level. The NCSD-CEP employs scenario-based exercises that focus on risks to the cyber and information technology infrastructure.
Through exercises, participants are able to validate policies, plans, procedures, processes, and capabilities that enable preparation, prevention, response, recovery, and continuity of operations (COOP). The controlled environment allows stakeholders to safely explore real-world situations, to improve communication and coordination, and to advance the efficacy of the broad-based critical infrastructure protection partnership.
