STATEMENT FOR THE RECORD

WILLIAM R. EVANINA FOR CONFIRMATION HEARING BEFORE
THE SENATE SELECT COMMITTEE ON INTELLIGENCE

TO BE DIRECTOR OF THE
NATIONAL COUNTERINTELLIGENCE AND SECURITY CENTER


May 15, 2018

 

Chairman Burr, Vice Chairman Warner, and Members of the Committee.

It’s an honor to appear before you today as you consider my nomination to be the first Senate confirmed Director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC). I am grateful that the Congress has considered the position I currently hold to be sufficiently important to require Senate confirmation—an acknowledgment of the significant, and growing, challenges being addressed by NCSC to enhance our nation’s security.

In my capacity as Director of NCSC over the last several years, I’ve often appeared before this, and other Congressional committees. I have great respect for the importance of Congress’ oversight role, and I have prided myself in keeping Congress fully and currently informed about developments within my cognizance in the counterintelligence and security field. If confirmed, I will continue this important information sharing commitment to Congress.
