Republican Members of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee sent a letter to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) today.
Good morning Chairwoman Stevens. Thank you for convening today’s hearing to examine the major research activities being supported by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in order to inform this Committee’s reauthorization of the Institute.
I would also like to thank Director Copan for being here this morning. I am looking forward to hearing your testimony.
Good morning Chairwoman Stevens and thank you for holding today’s hearing to examine the challenges both the public and private sectors are facing in recruiting and training cybersecurity professionals.
With advances in technology and the growth of the “internet of things” come new methods that foreign countries and cybercriminals can use to attack and access our networks.
Americans’ information is vulnerable and, as we will hear today, there is a demand for trained cybersecurity experts to identify and defend against cyber-attacks.
Thank you, Chairwoman Johnson for holding this important hearing on U.S. Competitiveness in Critical Technologies.
American superiority in science and technology is foundational to our economic competitiveness, our national security, and our way of life. But the U.S. is facing two fundamental challenges to our competitiveness and growth as a nation.
The Securing American Leadership in Science and Technology Act addresses both international competitiveness and climate change by doubling basic research over ten years and prioritizing world-class research infrastructure, a skilled STEM workforce, and a focus on critical technologies.
