This is the May 15, 2014 hearing on "Online Advertising and Hidden Hazards to Consumer Security and Data Privacy" held before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. From the Opening Statement of Senator Levin: "Good morning, everybody. For almost a year, the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations has been investigating hidden hazards to consumers' data privacy and security that results from online advertising. Our Subcommittee operates in a very bipartisan way, and our practices and our rules provide that the Ranking Minority Member may initiate an inquiry, and our tradition is for both sides of the aisle to work on investigations together, and our staffs work very closely together. This investigation was initiated and led by Senator McCain, so I would like to call on him to give his opening statement first, after which I will add a few additional remarks. But first I would like to commend Senator McCain for his leadership and his staff for their very hard work in addressing the facts and issues that are the subject of today's hearing. Senator McCain." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Alex Stamos, George Salem, Craig Spiezle, Maneesha Mithal, and Luigi Mastria.
