This is the February 10, 2021 hearing on "Homeland Cybersecurity: Assessing Cyber Threats and Building Resilience," held before the House Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Bennie G. Thompson: "In the not-too-distant past, when our witnesses were serving in Government, most of us had never heard of SolarWinds, but now it dominates cybersecurity conversation. Late last year, we learned that Russian actors breached targeted Federal networks and critical infrastructure, in part through a sophisticated supply chain compromise of the SolarWinds Orion platform. For almost a year, Russian actors burrowed into networks, hiding their tracks and patiently stealing data. Although we are engaged in an in-depth investigation with other key House committees to learn more about this malicious Russian campaign, we know enough to begin asking difficult questions and start correcting course. [...] The task before us is to zero in on how we can mature our defenses to match the capabilities of our adversaries. The Russian SolarWinds campaign threatens our Nation and cannot be tolerated." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Christopher C. Krebs, Susan M. Gordon, Michael Daniel, and Dmitri Alperovitch.
