Exercise NEPTUNE is a OSINT exercise where we conduct live OSINT operations (as friendly forces) on maritime units, in order to inform and improve cyber and information security in the industry, and to notice trends and possible attack vectors.

We also conduct hacks on Navigation and other ships systems in order to "break the ship", and we then simulate the impact of the compromise within our Estonian Maritime Academy ship simulator (we don't hack the live ships! But we do test out how the hack would compromise a real crew in the simulator).

This exercise is also conducted as a joint Strategic, Tactical and Operational realtime exercise to test and prove incident response and communications skills.
