IATC Cyber Crisis Simulation

Presented at BSidesLV 2017, July 26, 2017, 2 p.m. (115 minutes)

A SIMULATED crisis is unfolding on a national scale. Triggered by a yet-unknown adversary, what started as a technical issue has become a society-wide impact, affecting millions of citizens, several industries, and spanning government jurisdictions. Who is in charge, how do they cooperate with others, and how do they make decisions? BSidesLV and I Am The Cavalry are teaming up with the Atlantic Council to bring public policy makers together with security researchers and others, to find out how our nation would respond to a widescale "Cyber" crisis.
