Small Business Information Sharing: Combating Foreign Cyber Threats

The Committee on Small Business will meet for a hearing titled, “Small Business Information Sharing: Combating Foreign Cyber Threats.”  The hearing will take place at 11:00 A.M. on Tuesday, January 30, 2018 in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

As the Committee has learned in past hearings, some foreign backed firms have taken steps to expose small businesses’ information technology systems as a means of infiltrating America’s critical infrastructure and weakening our national security.  A key component in combating these cybersecurity vulnerabilities is strengthening the federal government’s engagement with private sector.  At the hearing, Members will discuss H.R. 4668, the Small Business Advanced Cybersecurity Enhancements Act of 2017, and examine how federal agencies are facilitating greater information sharing with small businesses that are vulnerable to foreign backed cyber attacks.
