About

On May 4, 2022, ICS Village is proud to present Hack the Capitol 5.0! This is the fifth installment of a free, day-long, multi-track event designed to educate congressional staffers, scholars, and the press on some of the most critical cybersecurity challenges facing our nation today.

Hosted by Crowell & Moring LLP, Hack the Capitol will be a hybrid conference with a live-stream option for those unable to attend in-person. This year's event will deliver programming along three tracks:

1. Policy Panels and Presentations, including keynotes and fireside chats by leading government officials

2. “Technical Talks” designed to offer a deep dive into leading issues in cybersecurity

3. An Exhibition Hall, with demonstrations (including hands-on) of industrial control systems

Hack the Capitol has attracted over 1000 registrants in the last year alone. Though in-person tickets are sold out this year, there is still time to register virtually and hear from influential figures in the field, including Jen Easterly, Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and Representative Jim Langevin (D-RI). Sign up today to join attendees such as Congressional policymakers and staffers, executives from the private sector across all several critical infrastructure verticals, academic subject matter experts from think tanks and universities, and members of the press. In-person tickets include access to breakfast, lunch, and a closing cocktail reception at 6pm.

Special thanks to our partners at the Atlantic Council, Crowell & Moring LLP, the Cyber Bytes Foundation, the Maryland Innovation Security Institute, the National Security Institute, and the R Street Institute.
