Serial No. 106-252: The Opening Statement of Chairman Stephen Horn regarding Computer Security provides an overview on Cyber Attacks: "In the United States, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Departments of Commerce and Defense all have a role in tracking and investigating cyber attacks. Many other agencies and private organizations also track and share this critical information. Other countries also have law enforcement agencies and organizations set up to investigate and share cyber attack information. But among the variety of players, who is coordinating an efficient, effective response to this international problem? Today, we will examine the challenges of coordinating these cyber attack investigations. Our witnesses represent cyber crime investigation units in several countries, including the United States. They will discuss their experiences. There is a great need for a sharing of these experiences daily, weekly and at least monthly. Alliances such as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization should work together if we will be able to win these cyber wars." Statements, letters, and materials for the record include those of the following: Roger Molander, John Pescatore, Richard C. Schaeffer, Jr., Mario Balakgie, Jack Brock, John T. Spotila, Michael Vatis, Juris Reksna, Stefan Kronqvist, Juergen Maurer, Elfren L. Meneses, Jr., Ohad Genis, Edgar A. Adamson, Thomas M. Davis, Stephen Horn, Stefan Kronqvist, Elfren L.
