Cyber Storm - DHS Security Exercise

'Cyber Storm: National Cyber Exercise' was an event put on by the National Cyber Security Divsion of the Department of Homeland Security from Feb 6 - 10, 2006. It's basically a test of our preparedness for an attack on the networking infrastructure within the US government and many other international agencies. They recently released a PPT of their findings. Here's a few links if you're interested in more info:
