This document is the April 4, 2017 hearing titled "Efforts to Protect U.S. Energy Delivery Systems from Cybersecurity Threats" before the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. From the opening statement of Lisa Murkowski: "Here in the United States, we have purposefully built redundant systems to ensure resilience and technological advancements have improved system efficiencies. We have made our devices smarter and connected more of them to the internet, boosting consumer convenience and lowering costs. But as the so-called ''internet of things'' has become increasingly involved in all phases of energy generation and delivery, we have created even more avenues for cyber intrusion. [...] We all recognize that this is no time for the United States to rest on the question of cybersecurity. The number and scope of attacks is ever-increasing and the resulting harm could be very significant. That is why our Subcommittee, under Senator Gardner's leadership, held a cybersecurity hearing last month and that is why we are broadening the effort here at the full Committee today." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Patricia Hoffman, Gerry W. Cauley, Duane D. Highley, Dave McCurdy, Andrew A. Bochman, and Gent Welsh.
