The third edition of the “Blue OLEx” exercise took place at the Parliament Palace in Bucharest on 12 October. The scenario of the exercise was designed to test CyCLONe’s standard operating procedures (SOPs) at the executive level in the event of a large-scale cross-border cyber crisis or an incident affecting EU citizens and organizations.
