Cybersecurity: CRS Experts

February 10, 2016 (R42619)
The following table provides names and contact information for CRS experts on policy and legal issues before Congress related to cybersecurity
. The frequency, impact, and sophistication of cyberattacks and the growth of cybercrime and cyberespionage have added urgency to the concernslong-standing concerns about those issues. Consensus has been growinggrown that the policy framework for cybersecurity should take into account the diversity and continuing evolution of the technology and threats—from spam to botnets to hacktivism, cyberterrorism, and cyberwar— , and the increasing role of the Internet in the U.S. economy and the lives of citizens. Among the issues Congress will likely confront are cybersecurity for critical infrastructure, most of which is owned by the private sector; information sharing, both of unclassified and classified information, along with protection of privacy and civil liberties; prevention of and response to domestic and and global economies and the lives of citizens. Issues include
  • information sharing among private-sector entities and between them and the federal government;
  • data breaches of personal records and other information;
  • protection of privately held critical infrastructure;
  • addressing domestic and
    international cybercrime and espionage; and ; the relationship between cyberspace and national security.
