A national exercise designed to test the government's readiness to
handle cyberemergencies won't happen until February, a Department of
Homeland Security spokesman confirmed Wednesday. The department, which
is headed toward a cybersecurity makeover of sorts, originally planned
to run the mock attack-and-response game--known as Cyberstorm--in

"While this exercise will be an important test of our readiness to
respond to and mitigate a significant cyberattack, our first priority
as a department is responding to real world events," spokesman Kirk
Whitworth said in an e-mail to CNET "As a result of
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, many of the department's resources, as
well as those of the private sector which would have been involved in
the Cyberstorm exercise, were reallocated to deal with the disasters
in the Gulf."
