About CIDeX 2022

The Critical Infrastructure Defence Exercise (CIDeX) 2022 is organised by the Singapore Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) and is scheduled for 15 and 16 November 2022.

CIDeX is an inclusive cyber exercise that gives Singapore’s critical infrastructure (CI) operators and regulators a learning platform to appreciate and practice the defence of a CI platform. With a better insight into how the platform – comprising IT and OT networks – can suffer from cyber attacks and their adverse consequences, the CII teams can distil these lessons and tailor them to augment their respective organisations’ cyber response and protection strategies.

In 2021, the inaugural CIDeX was originally part of the two-week Critical Infrastructure Security Showdown cyber exercise. Having grown in scale, CIDeX 2022 returns this year as a standalone cyber exercise with the addition of another CI system to bring it to a total of three such systems. These systems will be attacked by a composite red team and defended by the CII blue teams.

Last year’s inaugural CIDeX saw nearly 50 CI participants forming teams of 10. The CI sectors that were represented at CIDeX 2021 included water, power and telco. These sectors will return this year, along with a fourth CI sector – transport. With a positive response and feedback from last year’s participants, CIDeX 2022’s modality is updated to having the five CI blue teams monitor and defend the CI systems concurrently over two days. This update brings new challenges to the CI blue teams, who have more systems to monitor over a longer period, as well as the composite red team, who has to launch attacks against 50 CI guardians.

A comprehensive familiarisation programme will be conducted to equip the CII blue teams with the capability and confidence to navigate through the CI platform and utilise cyber tools to monitor the platform and respond to cyber attacks.
