The European Commission has published a press release concerning CyberEurope2014 which is a major EU cyber security exercise. In this exercise, organised by the European Network and Information Security Agency, more than 200 organisations and 400 cyber-security professionals from 29 European countries are testing their readiness to counter cyber-attacks.

The exercise tests, among other things, procedures to share operational information on cyber crisis in Europe; enhance national capabilities to tackle cyber-crises; explore the effect of multiple and parallel information exchanges between private-public, private-private at national and international level. The exercise also tests the EU-Standard Operational Procedures, a set of guidelines to share operational information on cyber crisis.
