This testimony is from the May 16, 2013 hearing, "Facilitating Cyber Threat Information Sharing and Partnering with the Private Sector to Protect Critical Infrastructure: An Assessment of DHS Capabilities" before the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security, Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection, and Security Technologies: From the opening statement of Patrick Meehan: "The NCCIC [National Cybersecurity & Communications Integration Center] is one of the U.S. Government's key civilian interfaces with the private sector for cyber threat information sharing, incident response, and protecting U.S. critical infrastructure. The NCCIC is a collaborative method for federal agencies, state and local governmental entities, and the private sector to communicate cyber threat information, analysis, and prevention methods in real-time. The Subcommittee has been crafting a body of work that will help to establish key areas where we can improve the Department's critical infrastructure protection from a cyber attack. We have examined the threat, particularly from nation-states. We have looked at protecting U.S. citizens from civil liberty violations. And today, we look at the threat mitigation capabilities at the Department of Homeland Security." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Patrick Meehan, Yvette D. Clarke, Bennie G. Thompson, Roberta Stempfley, Larry Zelvin, and Charles K. Edwards.
