This is the July 25, 2018 joint hearing on "GAO [Government Accountability Office] High Risk Focus: Cybersecurity," held before the United States House of Representatives Subcommittee on Information Technology and the Subcommittee on Government Operations of the Committee. From the opening statement of Will Hurd: "GAO's newly issued report raises serious concerns about our Nation's ability to confront cybersecurity risk. GAO found key deficiencies that could hinder the government's progress in strengthening the Nation's cyber defenses. For example, GAO found that the Trump administration's plans failed to include basic components needed to carry out a national strategy for protecting critical cyber infrastructure. Among the missing components were details about performance measurements and milestones for determining whether the country's cyber objectives are being met and the resources that would be needed to carry out those objectives. GAO's report highlights the need for the administration to develop and execute a more comprehensive Federal strategy for national cybersecurity and global cyberspace. It underscores the importance of having a cybersecurity coordinator in the White House to develop a more robust cybersecurity strategy for the country." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Gene L. Dodaro and Suzette Kent.
