This is a testimony compilation of the April 4, 2017 hearing on "Cybersecurity in the Health Care Sector: Strengthening Public-Private Partnerships" held before the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the Committee on Energy and Commerce. From the opening statement of Greg Walden: "As technology becomes increasingly integrated with all levels of our health care, cyber threats pose a challenge to the entire sector. Everyone - from the smallest rural hospitals, to large providers and device manufacturers - faces some level of exposure and risk. Breaches, exploits, and vulnerabilities are inevitable realities of modern society, even for the most well-resourced and sophisticated organizations. But this does not mean doom-and-gloom for everyone with an internet connection. It is simply reality and must serve as the baseline for any discussion about cybersecurity. We may not be able to stop every attack, but as the threats continue to escalate, we must do more to minimize the risk." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Denise Anderson, Michael McNeil, and Terry Rice
