As part of the Harvard Kennedy School’s Executive Education program on Cybersecurity: The Intersection of Policy and Technology, we ran the cybersecurity warfare scenario that we have used for many years now. As usual it seemed to be a blast for both participants and organizers. The original gang was back with professor Jim Waldo leading the charge. I also had a couple of folks from the Harvard Info Sec team join the fun.
Incidentally, I today I received a patch for the U.S Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) with an MD5 hash on it: 9ec4c12949a4f31474f299058ce2b22a
It is the hash for the mission statement of USCYBERCOM:
USCYBERCOM plans, coordinates, integrates, synchronizes and conducts activities to: direct the operations and defense of specified Department of Defense information networks and; prepare to, and when directed, conduct full spectrum military cyberspace operations in order to enable actions in all domains, ensure US/Allied freedom of action in cyberspace and deny the same to our adversaries.
