This is the April 11, 2018 hearing on "Cyber Operations Today: Preparing for 21st Century Challenges in an Information-Enabled Society" held before the House Armed Services Committee. From the opening statement of William M. Thornberry: "Threats to national security in cyberspace come from adversaries stealing information. Sometimes it comes from adversaries working to manipulate our decisions and American public opinion. Part of it is the potential to disrupt our economy and unleash havoc with our financial system, or electric grid, or public health and sanitation. And I have not even begun to discuss the consequences for the effects of our military's ability to operate. We still have not answered the fundamental question of what we expect the Federal Government to do to defend our citizens, our businesses, our infrastructure, and our society in cyber. Meanwhile, the capabilities of our adversaries and their willingness to use them is growing far faster than our response." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Keith Alexander, Michael Chertoff, and Jeh Johnson.
