Ho`o Maka`ala – Cyber Exercise

August 28 - August 29  8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Sponsored by State Department of Defense

Ho`o Maka`ala website

On August 28 and 29, Hawaii State Department of Defense will host Ho`o Maka`ala – Cyber Exercise at the Hawaii Convention Center. We want federal, state, local, private and public sectors to be “Ever Vigilant”, ensuring their systems and networks can withstand the myriad of cyber threats they are facing daily.

The exercise will bring together representatives from all 16 critical infrastructure sectors regardless of size across the state of Hawaii to be strong and withstand the threats against their internal system. We want to impress amongst agencies the need for a Cyber Incident Plan and to have an Incident Action Plan in the event something does impact the agency’s systems/network. Is your staff cognizant of what to do, who to contact and actions to take if there is a problem?

With the different agencies represented we hope to recommend resources to help develop agency plans
