On March 16, 2016, the Asia Pacific Computer Emergency Response Team (APCERT) held the annual APCERT Drill to test and train the cyber emergency responsiveness of each Asia Pacific member economy. The online drill was executed according to the written script, and the simulated cyber security incident was sent through e-mails. APCERT divided its online drill members into four groups, which were “script design group”, “facilities maintenance group”, “incident delivery group”, and “execution and response group”. The execution and response group was divided into two sub-groups: “the players” should respond to the incident it received and then reply to the APCERT incident delivery group; while “the observers” should monitor the drill, for example, to assure the delivery and response of the simulated incident.

The topic of the 2016 APCERT online drill was “An Evolving Cyber Threat & Financial Fraud”,  which is to simulate a certain bank’s e-mail server had been compromised by hackers hence was exploited to send phishing e-mails to the bank’s customers and caused those customers’ financial loss. After discovering the incident, the victimized bank reported to the local CERT and asked assistance.
