Former Intelligence Chief McConnell on Digital Vulnerability

The shift from analog to digital trade means global commerce is increasingly vulnerable to digital attack, says former National Intelligence Director Adm. Mike McConnell. McConnell, now with Booz Allen Hamilton, is concerned that cyber attack tools—which nation states are building by the thousands in the name of mutual deterrence—will get into the hands of extremist or terrorist groups. At our recent Data Security Lab, Techonomy’s David Kirkpatrick spoke with McConnell about how the digital revolution is transforming security and intelligence.
