This testimony is from the May 24, 2016 hearing on "Enhancing Preparedness and Response Capabilities to Address Cyber Threats" held before subcommittees of the House Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Dan Donovan: "As we are all aware, the cyber threat is real from both state and non-state actors. The countless cyberattacks against the United States and its citizens, including major attacks against Target, Home Depot, OPM [Office of Personnel Management], and Anthem, are just the tip of the iceberg. I believe that the number and magnitude of attacks will only increase, especially as more and more of our lives become connected to the Internet. It is imperative that we ensure that our State and local officials as well as our first responders are prepared to protect against and respond to a cyber attack." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Mark Ghilarducci, Daniel J. Cooney, Steven Spano, Mark Raymond, and Robert Galvin.
