This is the June 16, 2015 hearing on "A Global Perspective on Cyber Threats," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the Committee on Financial Services. From the opening statement of Sean P. Duffy: "The purpose of today's hearing is to identify the United States' primary cyber enemies, better understand the growing global cyber threat, and ultimately formulate more effective responses to cyber incidents. The cyber landscape today is vastly different from that of past years, with technology an integral component of nearly all transactions, means of communication, and methods of transportation. In recent years, there has been a growing focus on protecting the cyber security of critical infrastructure. However, in the wake of the breach of over four million personnel records at the Office of Personnel Management, it is still clear that much more needs to be done to protect Americans from cyber threats. Cyber crime provides a clear and present danger to the United States of America. At the other end of these attacks are nation-states like Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea; terrorist groups; criminal organizations; and hacktivists. These groups can range from sophisticated cyber actors to ideological groups motivated by political or patriotic reasons." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Richard Bejtlich, Frank J. Cilluffo, and Michael Madon.
