Iranian Cyber Threat to the U.S. Homeland
Congressional Testimony - April 26, 2012
 

Congressman Lundgren, Congressman Meehan, distinguished members of the Subcommittees:

Thank you for the opportunity to appear before you today to address the cyber warfare capabilities of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and the threat that they pose to the U.S. homeland.

Conventional wisdom suggests that the Iranian regime, now being squeezed significantly by sanctions from the United States and Europe and grappling with significant domestic socio-economic malaise, is far from an imminent threat to the American homeland (even if it does present a vexing foreign policy challenge for the U.S. and its allies). Yet, over the past three years, the Iranian regime has invested heavily in both defensive and offensive capabilities in cyberspace. Equally significant, its leaders now increasingly appear to view cyber warfare as a potential avenue of action against the United States.
