A storm is a brewing...

A select group of federal agencies and companies will be put to their cyber security preparedness to test this week, as part of the Homeland Security Department's Cyber Storm, according to a report in Federal Computer Week.

The national test, which will include Cisco Systems, Intel, Microsoft, Symantec and federal Defense and Justice departments, will span a week. During that time, assessments will be made on how well the U.S. is prepared to guard against and respond to a cyber attack.

Hopefully it will be better than putting the test into action. Cyber Storm was initially scheduled for November, but encountered a delay.

Let the games begin.
