MEDIA ADVISORY: Chairman Garbarino Announces Subcommittee Hearing on Critical Infrastructure Resilience, Cyber Insurance 

June 25, 2024

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection Chairman Andrew Garbarino (R-NY) announced a hearing for Thursday, June 27, 2024, at 2:00 PM ET, to examine the United States’ critical-infrastructure vulnerabilities and the role cyber insurance plays in planning, response, and recovery efforts.
“The daily lives of Americans depend on stable and resilient critical infrastructure, from oil and gas pipelines to the electric grid. Given threats from the PRC-affiliated actor Volt Typhoon and opportunistic cybercriminals exploiting Americans with ransomware attacks, it’s crucial for federal civilian and private networks to be properly equipped to mitigate the cascading impacts of cyber intrusions––especially since a vast majority of our critical infrastructure is operated by the private sector,” Chairman Garbarino said. “If expectations for coverage are set, cyber insurance has the potential to be a promising aid for organizational recovery. I look forward to hearing from our witnesses on how we can help owners and operators protect the infrastructure underpinning our national security and economy, ensuring critical infrastructure entities have as much help as possible at their most vulnerable moments.”
What: A Subcommittee on Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection hearing entitled, “Sector Down: Ensuring Critical Infrastructure Resilience.”
