IATC Mock Congressional Hearing presented at bsideslasvegas 2017

by Jay Healey, Jessica Wilkerson,

Summary : In the wake of a crisis, people inevitibly want answers. Who knew what, when? What could have been done to prevent it? Who will be held accountable? In the wake of our simulated crisis, we will hold a simulated Congressional hearing. Hard questions, grand standing, and much audience participation are expected, though no one will go to jail for perjury. We don't think. Led by current and former Congressional staff, some of our community who have actually testified before Congress will be in the hot seat and BSidesLV participants will get the chance to grill them...and maybe get grilled themselves.
