As we begin the 116th Congress, the cybersecurity of our nation continues to be a leading policy issue. Over the last two years, we saw two
widespread malware infections that caused

sensitive information stolen from a major credit reporting agency. Economic espionage continued to be a
point of contention in our relationship with China. It’s clear that cybersecurity is increasingly important to our constituents and to our national and economic security.
