Portuguese Armed Forces complete Cyber Perseu exercise

Over 60 companies, universities, state and military organizations across different countries participated in Cyber Perseu, a national cyber-defense exercise coordinated by the Portuguese Armed Forces. The exercise was conducted in Indra’s Cyber Range platform.

This combined effort looked to test and assess the detection, response and coordination capacity of different national governments and privately-run entities against a large-scale cyber-attack, helping participants identify procedures that can improve response times.

The test was carried out at the Military Academy of Lisbon over a four-day period in November. Participants included the Spanish Joint Cyber Defense Force and Brazilian Cyber Defense Command Center, and experts from privately-run companies in different sectors such as energy and utilities, transportation, telecommunications, banking sectors and others.

Some of the participants connected to Indra’s Cyber Range platform remotely from other regions and countries.
