In 2016, the Army Cyber Institute (ACI), in conjunction with Citigroup, executed a major city, multi-sector, public-private cyber exercise called Jack Voltaic (JV). It was the first step in building a framework to prepare for, prevent, and respond to multi-sector cyber attacks on major cities. Jack Voltaic was a research experiment in the form of a cyber exercise that involved players from multiple sectors, including first responders, emergency management, transportation, telecommunications, power, water, finance and healthcare.
The third experiment in the Jack Voltaic™ series, in partnership with FTI Consulting, will take place in 22-24 September, 2020, through a regionally focused exercise that includes commercial critical infrastructure supporting military deployment and global logistics operations. Charleston, SC, and Savannah, GA, are key locations that support military force projection. By conducting Jack Voltaic™ 3.0, both cities have an opportunity gain key insights and better understanding of their respective gaps in incident management for a cyber or cyber-enabled disruption or destructive event.
