This is the July 30, 2020 hearing on "Review of the Recommendations of the Cyberspace Solarium Commission," held before the House Committee on Armed Services. From the opening statement of James R. Langevin : "This subcommittee, more than most, has heard from numerous individuals on the centrality of cyberspace to our modern lives. The novelty of the Solarium's work and its findings is in examining how to secure cyberspace with an emphasis on a whole-of-government approach. Congress is methodical in its views of jurisdiction, and we are often too focused on viewing our oversight responsibilities exclusively through the lens of committee jurisdictions. What the Solarium Commission has presented in its final report, completed on March 11th of this year, is a blueprint for legislative and executive actions that force the country to break apart the institutional stovepipes. [...] The Commission's recommendations have resulted in more than 20 provisions in this year's National Defense Authorization Act, passed just last week by the House of Representatives. In that one bill, this chamber was able to address matters as diverse as Reserve support for military cyber operations to the cyber insurance marketplace to the establishment of a Senate-confirmed national cyber director." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Frank Cilluffo, Mike Gallagher, Angus King, and Patrick Murphy.
