Stanford University is hosting its third annual cyber bootcamp for congressional staffers this week in an effort to bring policy makers up to speed on a group of thorny and accelerating issues with myriad ramifications. The university is offering informational sessions, panel discussions, role-playing exercises and networking opportunities for nearly three dozen staffers from the United States House and Senate, representing offices and committees such as Homeland Security, Commerce, Judiciary, Energy, Appropriations and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. “We created the cyber bootcamp precisely because many congressional staffers had told us this was the type of help they needed,” said Amy Zegart, co-director of the Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC), a sponsor of the event, in a prepared statement.
