Cybersecurity: Continued Efforts Are Needed to Protect Information Systems form Evolving Threats: Statement for the Record To the Subcommittee on Terrorism and Homeland Security, Committee on the Judiciary, U.S. Senate
Gregory C. Wilshusen (au); David A. Powner (au)
Pervasive and sustained cyber attacks continue to pose a potentially devastating threat to the systems and operations of the fed. government. In recent months, fed. officials have cited the continued efforts of foreign nations and criminals to target government and private sector networks; terrorist groups have expressed a desire to use cyber attacks to target the U.S.; and press accounts have reported attacks on the Web sites of government agencies. The ever-increasing dependence of fed. agencies on computerized systems to carry out essential, everyday operations can make them vulnerable to an array of cyber-based risks. Thus it is increasingly important for the fed. government to have effective information security controls in place to safeguard its systems and the information they contain. This statement describes (1) cyber threats to fed. information systems and cyber-based critical infrastructures, (2) control deficiencies at fed. agencies that make these systems and infrastructures vulnerable to cyber threats, and (3) opportunities that exist for improving federal cybersecurity. Figures.
