Details: Locked Shields 2024 will bring together around 4,000 experts from over 40 countries, who will be tasked with protecting the infrastructure of a fictional nation and its countries in conditions close to real life.


“The increased involvement of different nations and partners demonstrates the global reach and importance of Locked Shields 2024, serving as a testament to its role in enhancing international cyber defence collaboration,” the NCCC said.

Locked Shields is the world’s largest cybersecurity exercise and is managed and developed by NATO’s Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence in Tallinn. In 2023, 33 countries participated in the exercise in 24 different teams.

Background: Ukraine joined the NATO Cyber Centre in March 2022, despite Hungary having blocked this in the past.
