Turkey distinguished itself in NATO's "Cybersecurity" exercise

Turkey achieved great success and ranked ninth out of 31 in the field of exercising closed armor, which is a simulation of electronic warfare that is the most complex and realistic in the world.

Thanks to its solutions in the field of cybersecurity, Turkey has achieved resounding success in the "Locked shields" exercise for cyber defense, which is organized under the umbrella of NATO.

Turkey achieved great success and ranked ninth in the field of the closed shields exercise, which is a simulation of the most complex and realistic electronic warfare in the world, with the participation of about two thousand members of the Member States (31 countries) in the NATO Partnership for Peace and Center of Excellence for Cooperative Cyber ​​Defense.

The Closed Armor exercise was launched in 2010 by the Center of Excellence (CCDCOE), which was established in 2008 in Estonia. And Turkey participated in it over the past ten exercises.

This time, the exercise witnessed the highest number of participation since its inception, and Turkey participated in it with a group of cybersecurity experts in Turkish institutions and companies, including the Aero-electronic Industries Company (Havilsan), coordinated by the Cyber ​​Defense Command of the Turkish Armed Forces.

Havelsan Company contributed to the exercise in the categories of malware, network security and web security, and Turkey achieved great success, and ranked third in the malware category.

In the exercise, 24 blue teams play the role of cyber defense, while a mixed red team from NATO plays the role of cyber attack.

The blue teams defend and repel cyber attacks on critical infrastructure in a parallel world, and scores are awarded according to several factors: ease of use, accessibility, and success in fending off attacks.

The exercise in this category begins with positive evaluations and scores for the systems in terms of ease of use and accessibility, then these scores decrease with the occurrence of problems in use or access during the repelling of attacks.

Scores are also deducted in the event of the inability to repel any attack.

The red team carried out nearly 10,000 cyber attacks in two days, and accordingly the blue teams that were able to defend sensitive infrastructures in the best possible way in terms of technical parameters are ranked according to the total points.

Turkey ranked 18th in the exercise in 2019, and 14th place in 2021, while the exercise was not organized in 2020 due to the Corona epidemic.

What is the significance of Erdogan's residence room number in Saudi Arabia? This is how the Turkish president commented 

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has completed his first visit to Saudi Arabia in nearly 4 years, in order to strengthen bilateral relations and joint cooperation between the two countries, but a "Latifa" and symbolic message was left in the hotel room in which he was a guest of Saudi Arabia, which was of interest to him.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan concluded a visit to Saudi Arabia on Saturday aimed at strengthening bilateral relations and joint cooperation between the two countries, but his room number in the hotel in which he was a guest during the visit drew his attention.

Erdogan pointed out, in press statements after the conclusion of the visit, that the room in which he stayed in the hotel in Saudi Arabia had a clear symbolic significance, as it bore the number 1453, the date of the conquest of Constantinople by Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror.

The Turkish president noted that the move would have been elegant if done on purpose, adding that "if they put the room number in mind with this message in mind, that was good luck. I hope we can follow the path of our ancestors with the same determination."

He continued, "We can achieve their success in the same way, as long as you follow the traces of history, you will succeed, but if you lose the trace of history, you will also lose."

"We continue to follow this path at the moment and it is our inspiration," Erdogan continued.

In the year 1453 AD, Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror led the Muslim armies in a historical epic that culminated in the conquest of Constantinople, present-day Istanbul, and this event was considered the beginning of modern history.

President Erdogan's visit to Saudi Arabia received great attention, as he announced, after its conclusion, the two countries' agreement to enhance joint cooperation in various fields, thus launching a new phase of cooperation between the two countries.

President Erdogan made an official visit at the head of a high-ranking delegation to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which lasted for two days, at the invitation of Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz.

The Turkish president was accompanied on his visit by his wife Emine Erdogan, Interior Ministers Suleyman Soylu, Defense Hulusi Akar, Justice Bekir Bozdag, Health Fahrettin Koca and Treasury and Finance Nureddin Nebati.

He was also accompanied by the Minister of Culture and Tourism, Muhammad Nuri Ersoy and Trade, Muhammad Muş, in addition to the deputy head of the "Justice and Development Party" Bin Ali Yildirim, the head of the intelligence service, Hakan Fidan, the head of the presidential communications department, Fahrettin Altun, and the presidential spokesman, Ibrahim Kalin.
