Brennan is quoted in the report as stating to NBC on Sunday, “The threats and the vulnerabilities within the cyber domain are serious and significant… It’s a very complex and complicated challenge, but we are working very closely with the private sector.”
Brennan is further quoted as stating, “We’re looking at these issues from the standpoint of espionage, from governments, from different individuals, whether they be hackers or terrorist organizations… National security is something that is at risk. That’s why what we’re trying to do is to ensure that our networks, our government networks, our private sector networks have the ability to withstand these attempts to hack in.”
