City preps for cyber attacks in Downtown Brooklyn
A little-known agency, New York City Cyber Command, aka NYC3, staged its first-ever joint simulated cyber war. NYC3 is the center of gravity for the city’s cyber security mission, responsible for the government’s enterprise and public safety agencies, as well as for the city’s businesses and residents. The attack was staged as a color war, with a “good guys” Blue Team fending off a barrage of malicious Red Team hack attacks. NYC3 partnered with NYU Tandon and several of the city’s top financial and security companies to stage the exercise at Tandon’s new tech hub at 370 Jay St.
