Turkey to run national cyber-security drill

Turkey is getting ready to run a national cyber-security drill to test possible vulnerabilities in its state institutions, a senior minister said on Wednesday.

Communications Minister Ahmet Aslan told Anadolu Agency the drill is part of a global awareness-raising effort on cyber-attacks.

On Nov. 29, the informatics infrastructure of Turkey’s state institutions and their capacity to respond to security threats will be tested, Aslan said, and called on all public bodies to join in the drill.

The minister stressed the significance of the exercise, saying it would both help improve security and strengthen coordination among institutions.

Around 20 public corporations will take part in the first phase of the drill, while nearly 50 will participate in the second phase.

Reports on security vulnerabilities will be shared with the participating institutions at the end of the exercise.
