Title

Harnessing Small Businesses Innovation for National Security Cyber Needs

Description

This is a hearing before the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Unconventional Threats and Capabilities of the Committee on Armed Services House of Representatives 111th Congress (second session).

The subcommittee believes that small businesses are important aspects of the economy and are quicker to innovate than larger corporations. The goal of the committee is to see how small businesses think about cyber issues. A diverse range of small business owners provide information about their cyber technologies, current security issues and future cybersecurity plans.

Cybersecurity reports and speeches often focus on macro-issues like national security and critical infrastructure. This hearing offers micro-perspectives about how cyber threats influence local corporations and United States citizens.

The hearing is in the Policymaker Directory. It is not common for small business owners to speak in front of the Armed Services, nor is it common for people to think about how small businesses can help/hinder the cyber threat.
