Congressional Hearings Week of 07-25-11

Both Houses in Washington, but there are too many distractions for much in the way of chemical or cyber security hearings this week. In fact, there is only one hearing scheduled that might be of interest to the cyber security community. On Tuesday the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee will meet to look at entitled “Cybersecurity: An Overview of Risks to Critical Infrastructure.”

The soon to be (maybe) Assistant Secretary of DHS for the Office of Cyber Security and Communications, Ms Bobbie Stempfley, will join Sean McGurk from the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) on the single panel currently scheduled to testify. They will be joined by Mr. Gregory Wilshusen, the Director of Information Security Issues from GAO. The GAO representative, along with the inevitable GAO report that he will be presenting will probably ensure that the hearing will concentrate on information security rather than control system security.
