Alexander: "I am here representing the Department of Defense in general and the men and women, military and civilian, who serve at U.S. Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) and the National Security Agency/Central Security Service (NSA/CSS). It is my honor to appear today with colleagues from the Department of Justice (DOJ) and its Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST). I hope to describe some of the challenges we face in performing the difficult but vital missions of keeping U.S. national security systems secure, helping to protect our nation's critical infrastructure from national-level cyber attacks, and working with other U.S. Government agencies, state and local authorities, national allies, and the private sector in defending our nation's interests in cyberspace. Together we make up a team deeply committed to compliance with the law and the protection of privacy rights that works every day with other U.S. government agencies, industry, academia, citizens, and allies, for only our combined efforts will enable us to make progress in cybersecurity for the nation as a whole." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Keith B. Alexander, Richard A. McFeely, Patrick D. Gallagher, and Rand Beers.
