Politico Morning Cyber Security: HEARINGS THIS WEEK
House committees will scrutinize the federal government’s offensive and defensive cyber capabilities in separate hearings this week. A House Oversight subcommittee will hold a field hearing in Chicago today to solicit opinions on cybersecurity information sharing and more from the private sector. Witnesses include the executive director of the cyber resilience organization ChicagoFIRST and the CTO of Chicago-area hospital system Advocate Health Care. “We’re interested in hearing about the challenges to cyber security and what you believe the federal government can do to help you keep sensitive data and networks safe,” subcommittee Ranking Member Robin Kelly will tell the witnesses, according to a prepared text of her opening remarks.
