BGD e-GOV CIRT holds Bangladesh’s first-ever cyber drill

Bangladesh’s cybersecurity platform BGD e-GOV CIRT has said it on Thursday organised the country’s first ever cyber drill.

A total of 35 teams from different types of organisations, including banks & non-bank financial institutions, participated in the event, the cyber security platform said in a press release on Friday.

Designed for the personnel of financial institutions, the drill aimed at sharpening skills during incident handling and building resilience and capacity for handling cyber threats in future.

The cyber drill, the theme of which was “Incident Handling in Financial Institutes”, concluded on a high note. In cyber security, incident management is the process of identifying, managing, recording and analysing security threats or incidents in real time.
