Transportation Challenges and Cybersecurity Post-9/11, Hearing Before the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, United States Senate, One Hundred Eleventh Congress, First Session, December 2, 2009   [open pdf - 751KB]

From the opening statement of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, "Ensuring our security and facilitating economic activity are mutually beneficial, not mutually exclusive. A safe and secure homeland requires that we maintain effective control of our air, land, and sea borders. Secure, well-managed borders must not only protect the United States from threats from abroad--they must also permit the expeditious and safe flow of lawful travel and commerce. We are pursuing both of these objectives through a broad array of programs in areas of special interest to this Committee. Today I would like to highlight some particular actions we are taking to address our security challenges, and how we working to develop multilevel, risk-based strategies that strengthen our security to the greatest extent possible." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John D. (Jay) Rockefeller, Chairman, U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation; Kay Bailey Hutchison, Ranking Member, U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation; and Janet Napolitano, Secretary, U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
