Crisis and Disaster Management Software Experiment at JFTC The Modeling and Simulation Group for Crisis and Disaster Management Processes and Climate Implications met at the Joint Force Training Centre (JFTC) between 16 and 20 October 2017. Experts arrived in Bydgoszcz to examine predictive and simulation tools that are developed to enhance the decision-making processes within the Alliance. Apart from JFTC capability development team, the limited experiment gathered members of the Crisis Management and Disaster Response Centre of Excellence, Modeling and Simulation Centre of Excellence, Joint Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear Defense Centre of Excellence, Bundeswehr Office for Defense Planning, University of Genova as well as representatives of the industry. Being the state-of-the-art platform for experimentation, JFTC turned out to be a perfect venue for execution of these tests and proved to be a key player in NATO innovation process. The outcome of the experiment is promising and further developments on crisis and disaster management tools are planned in the near future. Initial Cyber Workshop at JFTC Any organization that executes an operation or business function reliant on timely and accurate information, data, networks or communications systems operates in cyberspace. However, many of them never test their reactions to cyber-attacks to verify if they could operate properly during hostile circumstances. While organizations can exercise many different scenarios, there is a growing need to focus on assessing the effects of potential cyber-attacks on critical systems and data. Training how to mitigate their possible impact on the operation or mission is the next step. With that in mind, the Joint Force Training Centre (JFTC) hosted its initial cyber workshop between 6 and 17 November 2017. The event focused on the tools available to exercise cyber training objectives. It tested three currently used governmental and commercial cyber effects simulation products against a replicated JFTC training environment. The experiment showed the complexity of employing these solutions in a multi-warfare domain training environment such as the one at JFTC, and at the same time indicated opportunities it may bring.
