Taipei, Nov. 4 (CNA) The first-ever international cyber exercises co-hosted by the United States and Taiwan that opened Monday hope to combat the growing number of global cyberattacks, especially those from North Korea and China.

"Ultimately, the success of this week will be measured by whether all of you remain in close contact with each other after the exercises are over," said Greene of the exercises, known formally as the U.S.-Taiwan Cyber Offensive and Defensive Exercises (CODE).
