A bipartisan group of former senior government officials plans to stage 
a return to service exercise Feb. 16 as part of a simulation designed to 
show how the government would respond to and recover from a devastating 

The event, known as Cyber ShockWave, was co-created by former CIA 
Director Michael Hayden and a national security group that is part of 
the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC), the organization that.s hosting the 
event at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington.

Unlike recent government cyber role-playing exercises, members of the 
media have been invited to watch as the former officials scramble to 
keep up with a quickly changing situation.

The participants, who will be working to craft advice for the president 
and develop a response to the attack, won.t know what.s going to happen 
in advance. Instead, participants will have to react in real time to 
intelligence and news reports, the group said.
