The drill aimed to enhance the national network information security, incident detection and response skills for officials working on information security, information technology and incident response at network member units.

According to the organizers, this year's drill was carried out through a new method, as it was conducted on a real system. The experts participating in the drill were divided into different teams.

The teams were assigned to manage and protect their server systems by detecting incidents, getting evidence to analyze and identify the nature and cause of the incidents as well as the way the system was breached and the extent of the damage. Then, they had to draw up plans to deal with the incident and handle it.

In addition to this technical system, the organizers also set up an online guidance system to rank and award the participants with the fastest and most accurate analysis and investigation results.
