Synopsis

In his testimony, Gregory T. Nojeim outlines the cybersecurity threat and explain why measures appropriate for securing some critical infrastructure systems would be inappropriate for others. He emphasizes that private network operators, not the government, should monitor and secure private sector systems, while the government should monitor and secure its networks.
