1st Flagship Challenge Exercise


12 - 13 January 2021

JYVSECTEC is JAMK’s cyber security research, development and training centre.

This will be a technical cyber exercise but is also intended to be a fun, educational and inspiring exercise as well as offering purposeful exercise roles for attendees with varying technical/non-technical backgrounds

  • The Exercise in general: There will be a prepared background story for the exercise, which will be opened for the participants before the exercise. At a generic level, the exercise will model a situation “at the office” where the exercise organisation does not know what kind of incident they may face, by whom and who are the motivators behind it, and how did the incident got started: more info will follow later.
  • Role of the participants: A separate survey will be sent to enquire about individuals’ preferred role in the exercise which may vary from hands-on technical roles to more managerial or leadership role, or an observer role with no hands-on activities. Most of the participants will be assigned to an employee, a consultant, or service provider role in a fictional organization. There may be several fictional organizations in the exercise.
  • The Exercise environment is based on JAMK’s Realistic Global Cyber Environment (RGCE), a large scale cyber security research, development and training environment running on a private cloud. The environment realistically models the Internet and its services. For example, there are ISPs (Internet Service Providers) who provide connectivity and services for the exercise organisations. The organisations have environments realistically modelled, both technically and operationally.
