Cyber security exercises have experienced broad evolution in their relatively short lifetime. Cyber security exercises have been changing from individual technical skill based trainings or even competitions to the team based organisational learning experiences where different work-roles are trained and exercised during the cyber security incidents. Nowadays the modern requirements for cyber security exercises are collaboration between different training platforms and on-line remote participation of the learning audience. In the domain of cyber security, the most valuable assets are skills and know-how, so the basic ambition for conducting the cyber security exercises for individuals and for organisations is the learning. In this research, the learning experience during the state-of-the-art on-line remote cyber security exercise is studied. NIST NICE cyber security framework is used as a base for knowledge categories of used questionnaire. The results from the on-line cyber security exercise are analysed with and concluded with future research topics.
