NLE 12 Cyber Exercise

The Department of Homeland Security and FEMA are collaborating to host NLE 12.  This year’s exercise will have a cyber focus and will be “played” in FEMA Regions 1, 2, 3, and 5 during the spring and summer of this year.  Some impact or connection to the Water Sector is also expected.  NLE 12 will consist of four main exercises:

1.  Information Exchange – a discussion-based event to evaluate information sharing within the Federal cyber community.

2.  Cyber Incident Management – addresses the National Cyber Incident Response Plan.

3.  NLE Capstone/Cyber Physical Effects – examines challenges related to managing a cyber event with physical consequences and national security implications.

4.  Continuity Exercise – evaluates the continuity, devolution, and reconstitution capabilities of Federal departments and agencies during a cyber security incident.

If your state drinking water program or your water utility is interested in participating as either an active or virtual player, please contact Private.SectorNLE@dhs.gov for more information.
