Cyber isn’t all that special, says NSA chief
“Don’t be intimated by the technical aspects of cyber, he told conference attendees. ‘Don’t make this thing so specialized, so unique, so different that it just gets pushed to the side. That will sub-optimize our ability to execute cyber operations, and quite frankly it will minimize or at least negatively impact, in my view, the operational outcomes, which is the whole reason we’re doing this in the first place,’ he said.
Rogers asked how cyber can be framed in a way that brings a broader sense of recognition and makes it easier to integrate this into a broader set of operational activities, because if it doesn’t generate operational outcomes at the operational level, it is a waste of time and investment.”
