Serial No. 106-223: Chairman Stephen Horn's opening statement: "The security threat posed to our Nation's critical infrastructure is made more apparent each day as computer viruses place at risk the free flow of information in the cyber world. When you consider that our critical infrastructure is composed of the financial services arena, telecommunication systems, information technology, transportation, water systems, electrical power, gas and oil sectors, among many others; the threat is one that must be taken seriously. These sectors have traditionally operated independently but coordinated with the Government to protect themselves against threats posed by traditional warfare. However, in today's environment these sectors must learn how to protect themselves against unconventional threats such as terrorist and cyber attacks. They must also recognize the new vulnerabilities caused by technological advances. As we learned when preparing for the year 2000 rollover, many of the Nation's most critical computer systems and networks are highly interconnected." Includes statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record of the following: L. Craig Johnstone, Jack Oslund, David L. Sobel, John Tritak, Joel C. Willemssen, Daniel Woolley, Thomas M. Davis, Stephen Horn, and Jim Turner.
