Committee Hearings – Week of 10-15-17

With just the Senate in session this week most of the congressional hearings concern nominations. There is one cybersecurity hearing that may be of interest to readers of this blog.

The Senate Armed Services Committee will be holding a hearing on Thursday looking at “Roles and Responsibilities for Defending the Nation from Cyber Attack”. This is an open hearing, but there may be a closed (classified) session at the end. The witness list includes:

• Rob Joyce, National Security Council
• Kenneth P. Rapuano, Department of Defense
• Scott Smith, Federal Bureau Of Investigation
• Christopher C. Krebs, Department Of Homeland Security

There is a distinct possibility that control systems security issues associated with the electric grid may be discussed at this hearing, but at a policy level not a technical discussion given the participants.
