Enhancing and Implementing the Cybersecurity, Elements of the Sector-Specific Plans, Joint Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Emerging Threats, Cybersecurity and Science and Technology Joint with the Subcommittee on Transportation, Security and Infrastructure Protection of the Committee on Homeland Security, House of Representatives, One Hundred Tenth Congress, First Session, October 31, 2007   [open pdf - 4MB]

From the opening statement of James R. Langevin: "The subcommittees today are meeting to receive testimony on enhancing and implementing the cybersecurity elements of the sector-specific plans. [...] Although critical infrastructure protection is usually associated with physical protection of facilities, there is a growing realization that cybersecurity must receive equal attention. This holds true especially since the Nation's critical infrastructure relies extensively on computerized information systems and electronic data. [...] One of the most important ways we can secure our infrastructure is through the implementation of the sector-specific plans. [...] The completion of the sector-specific plans will allow DHS to write a national annual report on critical infrastructure protection which is designed to give us a general assessment of the security of our infrastructure. This firsthand report is scheduled to be released next week. Today, we will focus specifically on the cyber aspects of these plans." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: James R. Langevin, Michael T. McCaul, Sheila Jackson-Lee, Daniel E. Lungren, Yvette D. Clarke, Bill Pascrell, Jr., Greg Garcia, George Hender, J. Michael Hickey, David Powner, Larry Clinton, Lawrence A. Gordon, Sally Katzen, Michael O'Hanlon, and David Powner.
