This is the October 22, 2019 hearing "Preparing for the Future: An Assessment of Emerging Cyber Threats" held before the Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection, and Innovation of the House Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Cedric L, Richmond: "The subcommittee is meeting today to receive testimony on preparing for the future, an assessment of emerging cyber threats. [...] I want to welcome the witnesses to today's hearing on how we seek to balance the benefits of technical innovation with the security vulnerabilities that it may bring. The rapid proliferation of new technology is changing the world. Advancements in artificial intelligence, AI, and quantum computing will equip us with new tools to defend ourselves and break down barriers to new research that could improve the way we live and save lives. Unfortunately, one man's tool is another man's weapon. Sophisticated nation-state actors like Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea have already weaponized new technologies to disrupt our democracy, compromise our National security, and undermine our economy. As technology improves, so will their ability to use it against us." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Ken Durbin, Robert K. Knake, Niloofar Razi Howe, and Ben Buchanan.
