BGD e-GOV CIRT has successfully organized country’s 1st cyber drill on 22 October 2020. It was designed for the personnel of financial institutions. The purpose of this drill was to sharpen skills during incident handling. Challenges consisted of the use of hands-on skills, tools and real targets, real memory captures, and challenging analysis scenarios.

In Cyber Security, incident management is the process of identifying, managing, recording and analyzing security threats or incidents in real time.
