HEARING: #SubOversight to Examine Improvements to Health Care Cybersecurity Efforts


WASHINGTON, DC – The Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, chaired by Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA), announced a hearing for Tuesday, April 4, 2017, at 10:15 a.m. in room 2322 of the Rayburn House Office Building. The hearing is entitled, “Cybersecurity in the Health Care Sector: Strengthening Public-Private Partnerships.”

#SubOversight will examine the need for greater coordination and leadership on cybersecurity issues across the health care industry. Specifically, members will have the opportunity to review persistent challenges in public-private partnerships for health care cybersecurity and key areas in need of improvement.

“Efforts to boost our cybersecurity in the health care sector have been sporadic and largely ineffective,” said Chairman Murphy. “We need to strengthen our cybersecurity infrastructure across the board. I look forward to hearing ideas from private sector experts on how to improve engagement and leadership to accomplish that goal.”

The Majority Memorandum, witness list, and witness testimony for the hearing will be available here as they are posted.
