This is the March 1, 2018 hearing on "Private Sector and Government Challenges and Opportunities to Promote the Cybersecurity and Resiliency of Our Nation's Critical Energy Infrastructure" held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. From the opening statement of Lisa Murkowski:"Cyberattacks are a well-documented and continuing threat. Every day we seem to hear of yet another incident. Increasingly, it appears that the bad actors are nation-states and sophisticated entities, such as organized crime or terror groups. These attacks are across-the-board and not limited, of course, to energy infrastructure. [...] What should the Federal Government do, or refrain from doing, to meet this dynamic and evolving threat? And how can the government help improve the cyber resiliency of critical energy infrastructure if a threat becomes a reality? [...] Protecting our nation's energy infrastructure, we all agree, is critical to maintaining so much of the American way of life. We must determine what the next appropriate steps will be to further identify and prevent cyber intrusions and increase resiliency in the event of an attack. Those solutions may not require more regulation, but rather more common sense and cooperation." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Bruce J. Walker, Jim Matheson, Barbara Endicott-Popovsky, William H. Sanders, and Robert M. Lee.
