This is the June 25, 2019 hearing titled "Cybersecurity Challenges for State and Local Governments: Assessing How the Federal Government Can Help," held before the House Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection, and Innovation of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Cedric L. Richmond: "I want to welcome the panelists to today's hearing on cybersecurity at the State and local level. This is a topic that I believe deserves far more attention than it gets. Since joining this subcommittee, I found that, while we can all agree that cybersecurity is an important topic, it can start to feel unapproachable to people on the ground. As Chairman, I want to spend some time looking at how cybersecurity impacts real people, like the ones I represent in the Second Congressional District of Louisiana. I know that my constituents work long hours and have hard jobs, sometimes more than one. Many of them are not thinking about phishing emails or ransomware or whether a hostile foreign government has gained access to the networks that control their drinking water, their transportation, or their medical care." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Keisha Lance Bottoms, Thomas Duffy, Ahmad Sultan, and Frank J. Cilluffo.
