We'll drop the deets on how red team are divided between states by May 7
The lineup of teams may shuffle before the cyberbattle kicks off
What is the Standoff, anyway?
I already know the drill.
How can I take part?
The Standoff cyberbattle is...
A cyber exercise where infosec specialists test the defenses of company systems from various economic sectors using virtual states as their testing ground
A bit of cyberbattle lore
How all this comes together can be discovered at Moscow's Luzhniki sports complex on May 22–25.
Standoff 13 features some noticeable changes: besides the well-known State F, a new powerful infrastructure has emerged on the international cyberarena—State S.

Although State S was formed recently, its rapid economic growth has sparked interest from neighboring countries, and its unprecedented rate of technological development has attracted hackers. As a result, hackers now have an expanded array of targets, while defenders face a substantial increase in their protective duties.

So what else is new?
Since 2016, we've been preparing a complex infrastructure for each battle so that the bravest pros can put their skills to the test
At Standoff 13, there will be two virtual states: the well-known State F and the absolutely new State S with its own infrastructure and industries including oil and gas, metallurgy, energy, and more

State S

For the red teams, the cyberbattle will take place in two stages.

In the first stage, we'll divide hacker teams by state to form two opposing clans. Each clan will have its own objectives in the rival state, and the clan that accomplishes the most objectives wins.

Rankings within the clans will be based on points that each team earns for triggering security events and discovering vulnerabilities. The top four teams from the winning clan will move on to the second stage, the playoffs, and will battle it out for the top spot.

Mechanics for red teams

The blue teams won't be tied to either state and will be able to protect their respective sectors in one of two modes: investigation (monitoring) or defense (response).

In monitoring mode, the blue teams' task is to document as many incidents as possible and investigate all attacks.

In response mode, the teams can additionally prevent and repel attacks to protect their sector.

Opportunities for blue teams
