Indiana Exercising Plans to Combat Cyber Threats: Preparing for CRIT-EX 2016

By Capt. Mike McDonald, Doug Rapp, and Lt. Col. Ernie Wong

Indiana has purposefully adopted a culture of collaboration between government organizations, private firms, non-profits, and academia to improve the state’s response and resiliency to a significant cyber incident. This team approach will counter cyberattacks intent on degrading Indiana’s economic capacity and threating the critical services of its citizens.  Indiana will be hosting Crit-Ex 16.2 on the 18th and 19th of May, 2016, which allows participating organizations from across the public and private sectors to improve their understanding of the cyber ecosystem.
