Wired World: Cyber Security and the U.S. Economy: Hearing Before the Joint Economic Committee, Congress of the United States, One Hundred Seventh Congress, First Session, June 21, 2001   [open pdf - 259KB]

Cyber threats to the U.S. economy don't stop at the door of the Pentagon, and many people are making it clear that future threats to the United States will be aimed at the private sector and at crippling the U.S. economy, rather than crippling the U.S. military. So an attempt for us to find out whether the current policies governing cyber security and cyber protection are sufficient is very much within the purview of the Joint Economic Committee. Technology in general and the Internet specifically have been of great benefit to the economy. They have driven our economic growth in the last 10 years. At the same time, they open up a whole new series of threats that we have not traditionally had. Statements, letters, and material submitted for the record include those of the following: Jim Saxton, Robert F. Bennett, Jack Reed, Lawrence K. Gershwin, Brian Shaw, Steven Branigan, Peggy Lipps, Duane P. Andrews, Albert J. Edmonds, Jon S. Corzine, Lamar S. Smith, Catherine A. Allen, Frank J. Cilluffo, and a paper entitled "Mapping and Visualizing the Internet" by Steve Branigan, Bill Cheswick and Hal Burch.
