Hack the Capitol 2021 takes up cybersecurity and the challenge of securing critical infrastructure.
Hack the Capitol 4.0, held virtually on May 4, offered some insight into how US officials (and especially members of the US House) intend to work toward better security for US critical infrastructure, and what strategies might better secure the country against cyberattack. A collaboration among the ICS Village, the R Street Institute, the Cyber Bytes Foundation, and the National Security Institute, the event, in the hosts’ words, was “designed to educate congressional staffers, scholars, and press on some of the most critical cybersecurity challenges facing our nation today.” The CyberWire has an account of the event’s keynotes.
