NATO to Hold 18th Crisis Management Exercise Next Week.

Brussels, Nov.7 (BNA) - NATO will conduct its annual Crisis Management Exercise CMX next week from November 12 to 16.

The exercise is designed to practice Alliance crisis management procedures at the strategic political level and will involve civilian and military staffs in Allied capitals, at NATO Headquarters, and in both Strategic Commands. CMX 12 will be an internal command post exercise and no forces will be deployed for the purpose of this exercise, NATO said.

The Crisis Management Exercise will this year run concurrently with the NATO cyber defence exercise Cyber Coalition 12. The purpose of Cyber Coalition 12 will be to test Alliance technical effectiveness, operational, collaborative cyber defence procedures and capabilities.

The two exercises CMX 12 and Cyber Coalition 12 will be conducted based on one single fictitious scenario portraying an escalating threat from chemical, biological and radiological attacks, including large scale cyber-attacks affecting NATO and national critical infrastructure.

This exercise scenario will require Allied political direction taking into account the advice of NATO military authorities and technical cyber defence bodies on possible measures to handle asymmetric threats.
