U.S. Gov Official: Current Generation of Policymakers Lack Understanding of Technology

A  U.S. government official said that cyber defense has been slow-moving due to the current generation of policymaker’s lack of technological understanding.
“The truth is there are a lot of senior officials in many countries who barely even know how to use an email,” said Gottemoeller. “The change will come with the new generation.”

 

Many U.S. officials have called for more cyber defense transparency in the recent past between the government and private sector, where one could help the other and vice versa. For instance, both former CIA/NSA head Michael Hayden and ex-Marine Corps General James Cartwright agreed that cyber security threats are overclassified.
