U.S. House Committee to Hold Hearing on Recent Cyberattacks

U.S. Subcommittee on Communications & Technology and the Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade have announced a joint hearing to examine recent cyberattacks. The hearing is entitled, "Understanding the Role of Connected Devices in Recent Cyber Attacks." From today's announcement: "In light of the last month's cyberattacks against global Internet routing company DYN and the committee's ongoing work examining emerging cybersecurity issues, next week the subcommittees seek to examine how Internet of Things (IOT) connected devices are used in cyberattacks to deny access to popular websites or otherwise disrupt online services. The committee has a long track record of examining emerging cybersecurity threats and their impact on consumers and the economy."
