Washington, DC, September 21, 2018
Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) issued the following statement on the release of the Trump administration’s National Cyber Strategy:
“I commend the Trump administration’s strong commitment to improving the cyber posture of our nation. The National Cyber Strategy clearly outlines the administration’s plan – both offensive and defensive – to boost the security of our digital borders and promote the prosperity of our digital economy.
“I look forward to leading the cyber subcommittee’s collaboration with the administration to critically examine the key principles of the National Cyber Strategy. We must define DHS’ specific role in its implementation, so we can ensure a robust approach is utilized to most effectively address our top cyber priorities both foreign and domestic.”
Ratcliffe chairs the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection where he conducts rigorous oversight of the administration’s cybersecurity efforts.
