This is the July 22, 2021 hearing on "Terrorism and Digital Financing: How Technology is Changing the Threat," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Intelligence and Counterterrorism of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Elissa Slotkin: "Detecting and preventing terrorist funding at home or abroad has long been a cat-and-mouse game for the Federal investigators in the intelligence community. Just like cyber criminals, terrorists consistently seek legal loopholes, illegal pathways, and new tech to stay one step ahead of governments, especially when it comes to funding their operations. [...] While the technology has changed, today's terrorists and extremist groups benefit from using many of the same tools that so many of us rely on for our daily, honest activities, just as they exploited commonly-used financial systems in the past." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Stephanie Dobitsch, John Eisert, and Jeremy Sheridan.
