National cybersecurity test set for fall

Andy Purdy, acting director of the DHS's National Cyber Security division, announced the exercise, called Cyber Storm, earlier this week in a U.S. Senate subcommittee hearing. The division's top priority is establishing a "National Cyberspace Response System to prevent, detect, respond to, and reconstitute rapidly after cyber incidents," Purdy said in written testimony. Cyber Storm will test that "concept of operations for national incident response," which was devised by a consort of federal agencies, including the Defense and Justice departments.
