McCaul Statement on the National Cyber Strategy

Washington, D.C. – House Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) released the following statement on the Administration’s National Cyber Strategy.

Chairman McCaul: “As Americans have become more reliant on computer networks, everyone is now a potential victim of hacking by cybercriminals, nation states, and others. That is why over the course of my Chairmanship, I have made strengthening the DHS’ cybersecurity mission and capabilities one the Committee’s top priorities.

“I commend the Administration for taking yet another step to protect the cybersecurity of our nation. This strategy will help better combat malicious cyber acts from foreign adversaries like Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea. I have consistently said we must call out our enemies, send a strong message that we will respond when attacked, and ensure there are real consequences if we are.”
