The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) Strategic Technologies Program will host its first-ever cyber policy hackathon. The event, Cyber DiploHack 2015, will take place at CSIS headquarters on March 26th and 27th and a team of DPhil students will be representing Oxford.
Six teams drawn from universities in the United States and Europe will participate in an intensive, scenario-based policy hackathon to develop new approaches to cyber security and cyber capacity building. With facilitation from CSIS and outside experts, teams will apply creative ideation processes commonly used in technology design to solve a cybersecurity policy challenge. Cyber DiploHack will utilize cutting-edge technology to enhance collaboration between international teams, facilitators, and judges.
Created with the support of the Embassy of the Netherlands and the Dutch Ministries of Justice and Foreign Affairs, Cyber DiploHack 2015 will identify ways to bring principles into practice for cooperation and capacity building in cyberspace. Resulting concepts and ideas will serve as input for the Global Conference on Cyberspace (www.gccs2015.com), organized April 16-17 in The Hague.
