Representative Josh Gottheimer

(D-NJ 5th District)

As the United States incentivizes investments in emerging technologies, we must ensure that our advances are not undermined by domestic threats or anti-democratic, authoritarian regimes like those in China, Russia, and Iran. These foreign adversaries have made it clear that they are willing to leverage technology to breach United States institutions, steal intellectual property, collect data on American citizens, and access the systems that control our critical infrastructure. I’m honored to join colleagues from both sides of the aisle to serve on the Global Tech Security Commission. Our work will help protect national security, bolster American competitiveness, safeguard our infrastructure and economy, and fight back against foreign aggression.
