In writing my weekly post about congressional hearings for the coming week I noted that the list of Senate hearings looked a little light and commented that it could have been because of staff being out of town. It looks like I was right; a large number of hearings were added to the list today including a cybersecurity hearing.
The Homeland Security Subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee will be holding a hearing on “From Protection to Partnership: Funding the DHS role in Cybersecurity". The witness list includes:
∙ Andy Ozment, Office of Cybersecurity and Communication, DHS;
∙ Luke McCormack, Chief Information Officer, DHS; and
∙ Greg Garcia, Executive Director, Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council
I expect that there will be questions about the new cybersecurity organizations created by Presidential Executive Order.
