Press Release

Washington, DC – Touting both his experience in the cyber industry, as well as his many years as an undercover CIA officer, Texas Congressman Will Hurd, reacted in support of Chairman Michael McCaul’s legislation to create the Digital Security Commission: 

“Protecting our civil liberties, while giving law enforcement the tools they need to catch terrorists, is a balance we can and must maintain.  I helped start a cybersecurity firm and I spent almost a decade in the CIA chasing bad guys, so I understand this issue better than most. I commend Chairman McCaul for taking the initiative to begin to solve this problem. Bringing everyone together to speak to each other, instead of past each other, is a vital first step.”
