Former Clinton, Bush Officials to Gather in D.C. for Simulated Cyber-Attack – CQ Homeland Security

One of the most worrisome questions in the national security world is what would happen if the nation were struck by a large-scale, coordinated cyber-attack. A group of former officials from the George W. Bush and Bill Clinton administrations are going to try to provide an answer next week.

The Bipartisan Policy Center is bringing the officials — including former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, former Director of National Intelligence John D. Negroponte and former White House homeland security adviser Frances Fragos Townsend — together for a Feb. 16 event called “Cyber ShockWave,” a simulation of an attack that affects much of the nation.
