Protecting our Critical Infrastructure
This week, we learned that the Federal Bureau of Investigation identified an attempted cyber-attack on the Boston Children's Hospital as having been perpetrated by hackers working for the Iranian government.
Additionally, malicious foreign actors, including Russian hackers, have been probing the systems of American energy companies and other critical infrastructure projects, posing a significant threat to our national security.
In response, I introduced the Cyber Deterrence and Response Act to fortify our critical infrastructure and put the safety of Americans first. My bill will force the Biden Administration to respond to any cyberattack from foreign enemies with forceful sanctions. Any type of attack on American soil will not be tolerated.
