This compilation is from the July 28, 2015 hearing "Promoting and Incentivizing Cybersecurity Best Practices," held before the House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security, Subcommittee on Transportation Security. From the opening statement of John Ratcliffe: "The SAFETY Act ensures that the threat of costly litigation does not deter potential manufacturers or sellers of anti-terrorism technologies, at both small and large companies, from developing and putting into the marketplace products and services that could reduce the risk or mitigate the consequences of a large-scale terrorist event. Companies qualify for the protections afforded by the SAFETY Act by demonstrating, through an ongoing basis, that they have a comprehensive and agile risk management plan. Applicants to this voluntary program must submit to a rigorous and thorough vetting process by DHS' SAFETY Act Office in order to receive liability protections in the event of an act of terrorism." Statements, letters, and other materials submitted for the record include the following: John Ratcliffe, Brian Finch, Raymond B. Biagini, Andrea M. Matwyshyn, Energy and Utilities Sector - Joint Trade letter.
