Cyber Security: Responding to the Threat of Cyber Crime and Terrorism, Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism of the Committee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, One Hundred Twelfth Congress, First Session, April 12, 2011   [open pdf - 6MB]

From the opening statement of Sheldon Whitehouse: "Today's hearing takes on a topic of vital importance: Cyber Security: Responding to the Threat of Cyber Crime and Terrorism. We live in the most connected and technologically advanced country in the world. Our electrical engineers, computer scientists, and technology companies have changed the way that the world does business, made our daily lives safer and more enjoyable, empowered free speech in repressive states, and brought the world closer together. These remarkable innovations unfortunately also have given criminals, terrorists, and hostile states new opportunities to steal American property, disrupt our way of life, and compromise our National security. American consumers are now subject to endless swindles achieved by spear phishing e-mails, malware that turns their computers into unwitting bots sending out malicious spam, or the many varieties of identity theft cooked up by cyber crooks to steal hard-working Americans' privacy and money." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jon, Kyl, Sheldon Whitehouse, Stewart A. Baker, Pablo A. Martinez, John E. Savage, Phyllis Schneck, Jason Weinstein, and Gordon M. Snow.
