OZON: Practice how you react in a cyber crisis

OZON is a national cyber crisis exercise that takes place every 2 years. During OZON you practice how to react in case of a cyber crisis and find out whether your institution is well prepared for a cyber crisis. During the exercise we simulate all kinds of aspects of a cyber attack. In October 2018, 50 institutions participated. Do you want to take part in OZON? The next OZON is planned for the autumn of 2020!
