About CIDeX 2022

The inaugural Critical Infrastructure Defence Exercise (CIDeX) 2022 is the largest OT hands-on-keyboard Critical Infrastructure defence exercise. It provides a platform for Singapore’s cyber defenders to train together the defence of Critical Information Infrastructure (CII).

With a better insight into how the CII – comprising IT and OT networks – can suffer from cyberattacks and their adverse consequences, the blue teams can distil these lessons and tailor them to augment their respective organisations’ cyber defence and protection strategies.

CIDeX 2022’s platform has three OT testbeds contributed by iTrust — the Secure Water Treatment (SWaT), Water Distribution (WaDi) and Electric Power and Intelligent Control (EPIC) OT testbeds, integrated with an Enterprise IT network of VMs hosted within NCL.

Over 50 cyber defenders from 17 organisations representing five critical sectors — power, water, telecommunication, land transport and maritime — will form five combined blue teams to monitor and defend the CII systems over two days. A composite red team will launch a series of live simulated cyber attacks on these systems over two days, while the five blue teams will work in concert to detect and respond against the attacks.

A comprehensive 3-day pre-exercise training programme will be conducted in SAF’s Cyber Test and Evaluation Centre (CyTEC), so as to equip the blue teams with the capability and confidence to navigate through the CII platform and utilize appropriate cyber tools to monitor the platform and respond to the cyber attacks.
