"This is the March 16, 2016 hearing before the House of Representatives Committee on Armed Services entitled 'H.A.S.C. No. 114-112: Hearing on National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 and Oversight of Previously Authorized Programs, Before the Committee on Armed Services, House of Representatives, One Hundred Fourteenth Congress, Second Session, Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities Hearing on Fiscal Year 2017 Budget Request for U.S. Cyber Command, Preparing for Operations in the Cyber Domain.' From the opening statement by the Honorable Joe Wilson: ' Ladies and gentlemen, I call this hearing of the Emerging Threats and Capabilities Subcommittee of the House Armed Services Committee to order. I am pleased to welcome everyone here today for the hearing on the fiscal year 2017 budget request of the United States Cyber Command. Since we last met to talk about the work of USCYBERCOM, the news has been filled with stories that remind us of the critical job facing the Department of Defense [DOD], from the intrusion on the Joint Staff networks to the compromise of personal information of millions of government personnel and their families. Cyber is proving to be both a domain of warfare on its own as well as a key enabler for all other domains of war. In looking through this most recent budget request, we should be asking ourselves some important questions. Do we have the resources, people, cyber tools and training needed to be effective? Do we have the necessary policies and authorities to conduct cyber operations? What areas require additional refinement? Are we deterring potential adversaries and contributing to our overall national security?"
