Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta visited with Gen. Keith Alexander, head of the National Security Agency and the U.S. Cyber Command and other NSA leadership at Ft. Meade on Saturday.
Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said Panetta observed technology demonstrations and received briefings about key issues in the cyber arena.
Panetta’s “discussions focused on efforts to enhance information sharing across the Defense Department and the intelligence community,” Little said.
According to Little, Panetta said he was deeply impressed by team efforts to defend America against cyber attack.
“The secretary acknowledged the critical and important work that the Cyber Command and NSA team are accomplishing, and continues to stress the importance of developing cyber capabilities to meet emerging cyber threats,” Little said.
