For the fifth time, APCERT involved the participation of members from the Organisation of the Islamic Cooperation – Computer Emergency Response Team (OIC-CERT) in this annual drill.


The theme of this year’s APCERT Drill 2018 is "Data Breach via Malware on IoT". This exercise reflects real incidents and issues that exist on the Internet. The scenario, for this year, simulated an attack on the medical sector where the initial compromised was followed with exfiltration of data and infection of IoT devices within the medical sector.
