This is the September 18, 2020 hearing on "Cybersecurity at NASA: Ongoing Challenges and Emerging Issues for Increased Telework During COVID-19," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics of the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.

What does the increase and extended use of telework mean for protecting NASA's intellectual property, personally identifiable information (PII), and mission operations? How do the cyber challenges related to increased telework affect the agency's overall cybersecurity risk posture, and what steps is NASA taking to ensure the effectiveness of its cybersecurity efforts during the pandemic and beyond?" Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following:
