This is the May 21, 2014 hearing titled "Assessing Persistent and Emerging Cyber Threats to the U.S. in the Homeland." It was presented as a Joint Hearing before the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence and the Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection, and Security Technologies of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of the honorable Peter King: "The expanding number of cyber actors, ranging from nationstates to terrorists to criminals, as well as increasing attack capability and the increasing intensity of cyber attacks around the globe, have made cyber warfare and cyber crime one of the most significant threats facing the United States. […] Over the last decade the threats facing the United States have become more diverse, as have the tools for conducting attacks and waging war. While the United States has made great strides to secure the homeland since 9/11, our enemies have evolved, and we must now consider that a foreign adversary, terrorist network, or a criminal organization will use cyberspace to penetrate America's defenses. […] The subcommittees are meeting today to hear testimony examining persistent and emerging cyber threats to the United States." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Glenn Lemons, Joseph Demarest, and Larry Zelvin.
