This is the October 30, 2013 joint hearing on "Cyber Incident Response" held before the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Susan W. Brooks: "The Subcommittees on Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Communications and Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection and Security Technologies will come to order. […] October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, and I think it is so very important that we observe this month in part of our awareness because it must be our ability to not only protect our networks and our critical infrastructure from intrusions, but also, what is our ability to respond should an intrusion become successful? After all, we do know that the threat of a cyber attack is real and in a speech just prior to her resignation former Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano discussed that threat. She forecasted that our country will face a major cyber event that will have a serious effect on our lives, our economy, and the everyday functioning of our society." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Susan W. Brooks, Donald M. Payne, Jr., Yvette D. Clarke, Bennie G. Thompson, Roberta Stempfley, Charley English, Craig Orgeron, Mike Sena, and Paul Molitor.
