Feb 11, 2020 Opening Statement

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.
