This testimony compilation is from the May 10, 2017 hearing on "Cyber Threats Facing America: An Overview of the Cybersecurity Threat Landscape" before the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. From the Opening Statement of Chairman Ron Johnson: "Cybersecurity is one of the most significant issues facing the country, as it affects every sector--from manufacturing to finance to government to energy. In July 2012, General Keith Alexander, then Director of the National Security Agency, stated that the loss of industrial information and intellectual property through cyber espionage constituted the 'greatest transfer of wealth in history.' Of course, espionage is just one of the many cyber threats we face. Today's hearing looks at the broad cybersecurity threat landscape, which can be broken down into four categories: criminal attacks, malicious attacks, industrial espionage, and cyber warfare. The mission of this Committee is to enhance the economic and national security of America and promote more efficient, effective, and accountable government." Statement, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jeffrey E. Greene, Steven Chabinsky, Brandon Valeriano, and Kevin Keeney.
