Discusses the cyber threats to critical infrastructure and the American economy. Pervasive and sustained cyber attacks against the U.S. continue to pose a potentially devastating impact on federal and non-federal systems and operations. In Feb. 2011, the Director of National Intelligence testified that, in the past year, there had been a dramatic increase in malicious cyber activity targeting U.S. computers and networks, including a more than tripling of the volume of malicious software since 2009. This testimony describes: (1) cyber threats to cyber-reliant critical infrastructures and federal information systems; and (2) the continuing challenges federal agencies face in protecting the nation’s cyber-reliant critical infrastructures and federal systems. A print on demand report.
