MEDIA ADVISORY: Garbarino Announces Subcommittee Hearing on “The State of American Cybersecurity”

WASHINGTON, D.C. —House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection Chairman Andrew Garbarino (R-NY) will host a hearing to evaluate the state of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The Committee’s CISA 2025 initiative is a roadmap on oversight, engagement, and legislative goals to ensure CISA matures into a more effective operational agency by 2025, while avoiding unnecessary bureaucratic red-tape.

Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection Subcommittee hearing entitled, “CISA 2025: The State of American Cybersecurity from a Stakeholder Perspective.” 

“America’s cybersecurity is a crucial component of our national security, and it must be protected in a bipartisan manner and in coordination between both government agencies and the private sector,” said Subcommittee Chairman Garbarino.  “As foreign adversaries work day and night to infiltrate and compromise our nation’s critical infrastructure, this subcommittee’s top priorities are strengthening CISA as our nation’s risk advisor and conducting critical oversight to prevent bureaucratic barriers to information sharing. America’s cyber readiness and responsiveness is on the line.”

WHAT: A hearing to evaluate the state of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the Committee’s CISA 2025 initiative from the perspective of cybersecurity experts and stakeholders.
