This is the March 2 and May 11, 2017 hearings titled "Cyber Strategy, Policy and Organization" held before the Senate Committee on Armed Services. From the opening statement of John McCain: "As cyber threats have evolved rapidly, our legal frameworks have failed to catch up, and this is just one of a long list of basic cyber questions we as a nation have yet to answer. What is our theory of cyber deterrence, and what is our strategy to implement it? Is our government organized appropriately to handle this threat, or are we so stovepiped that we cannot deal with it effectively? Who is accountable for this problem, and do they have sufficient authorities to deliver results? Are we in the Congress just as stovepiped on cyber as the executive branch such that our oversight actually reinforces problems rather than helping to resolve them? Do we need to change how we are organized?" Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Keith B. Alexander, Craig I. Fields, James N. Miller, Matthew C. Waxman, James R. Clapper Jr., James G. Stavridis, and Michael V. Hayden.
