"chertoff group" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"David Weston President Biden is about to announce a series of steps the government is taking to maximize protections against the spread of the over crown variant including efforts at the border to keep the virus out of the country wherever we can We welcome back now Michael chertoff he's former secretary of Homeland Security He is cofounder of the chertoff group So Michael thank you so much for being back with us I mean you had responsibility for that border security Give us a sense of the responsibility we're putting on the shoulders of people like at TSA and for that matter on our border with Mexico or border with Canada Well I mean I think that obviously there's going to be a new set of requirements I think at least discuss the possibility requiring testing within a day before you come into the United States I think be sure to check in at the border in terms of whether people have a randomized testing or temperature or things of that sort So there will be an operational change that will have to go into effect Now this has happened before and we've dealt with it But it forced a little bit of a shakedown that's required to get everybody up to speed on new protocols to make sure they're properly equipped And of course if the land borders you get a lot of pressure because there you've got a huge volume of people and that means you've got a lot of additional folks you have to test or evaluate Well talk about the landlord just for a moment Michael because we do hear I've heard on this program several times and I must say often it's from Republican lawmakers saying part of the problem with the pandemic actually is that border with Mexico There's a fair amount of disease coming across the border Do we know if that's true I don't really know that that's true I mean it reminds me of people saying that oh the border of Mexico is in vehicle or an avenue for a lot of terrorists which turned out not to be true In fact if we've gotten terrorists coming their first land border it is typically been from Canada not So I think that gets swept up in politics I don't think there's a particularly high level of disease coming from Mexico But again you know you have to look at all the borders landscape and air if you're going to take a comprehensive approach So Michael we're going to the holiday season Obviously unfortunately we're going to be focused once again on COVID and particularly as overcome variant But give us a sense of what other security risks that might be heightened during this holiday season One of the risks which will continue in terms of cybersecurity as more of a Civil War remotely we've been using our devices on the network Many of those devices are not particularly well protected And he's become avenues for people to engage in cyberattacks But beyond that we've seen a dramatic increase in ransomware we've seen a tax on healthcare systems Colonial Pipeline other kinds of critical infrastructure and I have every reason to believe that may continue And that's going to require a strategic change in terms of how we look at cybersecurity both from the government and from the private sector I know the government now is focusing on upping the game in terms of defending critical infrastructure And I expect with in very short order we're going to see some additional new steps taken to make sure we are protecting ourselves against not only criminal groups but frankly geopolitical adversaries like Russia and Iran And we had that spate of incidents including pipelines and things like that A lot of ransomware attacks They seem to have died down a good deal Is that because we're doing a better job I don't think that you dive down frankly I think maybe they paused a little bit We are doing somewhat of a better job I know the TSA for example put out rules with respect to pipelines that increase their cybersecurity capabilities But I wouldn't count on this coming away And in fact there was a story reported recently in the news about the Iranians attacking their major healthcare system in Israel So this is going to be with us for some time And particularly as matters heat up with Russia and Ukraine we may wind up hearing some affects of that in terms of cyber disruption aimed at distracting the United States from being too engaged in what's going on in Europe Mister secretary tickets back into your old job for a moment because there are various instance we had that terrible incident with the walker shook holiday parade with the motorists who drove through the prey We also have all of these apparently organized smash and grab it and what you call it thieves sort of breaking into stores in Northern California At what point does that become a Homeland Security issue rather than simply a local law enforcement issue Well I think certainly if you're dealing with an organized group particularly when it's motivated by terrorism does become a Homeland Security issue I don't know that there was concent case was a terrorist issue sure I think it may have been somebody involved in criminal activity fleeing and trying to distract and these efforts to engage in smash and grab alluding in California against humanely criminal What I do think we see there was a phenomenon in which as someone carries out for example a series of criminal acts others watch it and they start to imitate it And this is really a challenge for social media whether these platforms are not becoming vehicles for inciting bad behavior on the part of those who watch it succeed and go well I'm going to do this too And then this we're going to need to take a closer look at how do we work with social media to make sure you're not becoming incendiary tools in promoting criminality and violence And you raise such an interesting point I mean obviously you were a lawyer youth attorney a Court of Appeals judge of the third circuit And as you know well and criminal law conspiracies are worse than individuals acting So some of this is the organization involving other people whether it's internationally in a terrorist group or homegrown Can you compare the risk of international terrorism as opposed to just homegrown terrorism that's organized Well right now we've actually done a good job over the last 20 years and protecting our country against international terrorists coming in from overseas over another part of the world And that's the data to a lot of the very fine work done by the folks in the border When you're dealing with homegrown terrorism there's no border It's right next door And I think that's why we're seeing an increase in the homegrown terrorist acts where there is a tax on religious institutions or things in schools is firing in many cases by the Internet but sometimes just generated And that's much harder to deal with because it's low profile There's usually not a lot of planning communication and the intelligence agencies are much more eliminated in their ability to examine intelligence domestically than is the case overseas because we do have certain constitutional protections And that's why the issue of homegrown terrorism violence is going to require much more engagement by local law enforcement and even by local communities who have to be willing to speak up when they see a threat rising in the neighborhood If you see something say something I guess is what that is Thank you so much mister secretary for being back with us That is Michael chertoff He's former U.S. secretary of Homeland Security and author of exploding data reclaiming our cybersecurity in the digital age Coming up.

"Banking Committee Chairman Sherrod Brown on whether vice chairman Randy Quarrels should step down at the end of his term in October. Plus I get his views on Fed policy. I think the feds concerned about inflation. Most of the Fed members think it's transitory that the pent up demand and so many things from housing to other things. It means that there will be temporary, maybe short term but not long, long term price increases. But first this week, we learned of yet another computer hack originating from Russia, this one on the Republican National Committee coming on the heels of that massive hack of Casillas software that may have hit some 1500 companies for an update on what we You know, and what could come next? I talked to Adam Aisles, head of the cyber practice at Chertoff Group. First of all, it's not surprising that we would see you know an attempt by a state actor to compromise or organization like the Republican National Committee, right. I mean, it's kind of a classic. Espionage target. You know, the news reporting focuses on SVR, You know, which is, you know, one Foreign Intelligence agency within the Russian Federation. There was reporting last week that the G R U is conducting kind of a. You know what's known as a Global brute force campaign, so So the idea that someone was trying to access the RNC, I don't think is surprising. What the What we understand in terms of actual facts is, you know there's been a comment that your NC's it vendor had potentially been compromised, but the RNC itself has said You know that No data has been accessed at least as so far as they know what's the common thread here in the comments right here is the technology supply chain. Right and what we're seeing rate you know whether we're focused on RNC or say rate is a variety of threat actors using a weaknesses in the technology supply chain. Basically stepping stones into their ultimate targets. So was that version also what we saw on solar winds going all the way back to solar winds? That was that was a supply chain issue as well. Was it not absolutely absolutely. Solar winds was essentially used as a stepping stone into you know the ultimate targets of the SVR. Um it's solar wind is slightly different than in cassia in the sense that solar winds Involved Actually, a compromise of the code, Right? You know, software code had malware inserted into it. Whereas in the case of to say, as far as we know, it appears, though, there was a vulnerability that was exploited that essentially allowed the threat actors to stand in the shoes of a legitimate user. I mean, in both cases, we're talking about the software. Being used, You know, essentially as a puppeteer by threat actors to accomplish their objectives. Explain if you could manage service providers because one thing I read suggested that part of it is the structure of the way. An entity controls a lot of different computer systems. Yeah, I mean, you know, we talk about puppeteers. We managed service providers writer commonly used across sectors to outsource the operation. Maintenance of networks of storage of Laptops, desktops and another. It functions and so in a sense, um you know they're a they're kind of a common pathway into many different companies. And they're you know they're used for efficiency for cost savings. And for greater it effectiveness purposes by large and small companies will like. Is there any way to change that structure to defend without fundamentally changing the way we get our I T services. Well, look, I think this involves looking, you know, taking a threat and form defense approach. Um, you know, both within the suppliers of technology and within the buyers of it, so from the suppliers perspective You know, as we look at Cassie and others, you know whether the kind of a hero than this is, you know, the Dutch Institute of Vulnerability Disclosure Right, which had been actually identified the vulnerability to issue and was was working with cassette to try and address it. Unfortunately, they weren't successful in dealing with it before the attack a crew but you they've they've warned, and, you know, more and more of the products. You know they're supposed to be keeping network safe and secure showing structural weaknesses. So from the supplier perspective, right? We need more focused around what is good software Lifecycle security look like From a buyer perspective. You know, we need to assume this is not stuff that changes overnight. We need to assume, you know, risk in in the technology we're buying and a player an approach that says You know what? At some point, we could have a machine that's compromised. What then? What is a defensive strategy look like that says, you know, let's work to make sure that if a machine is compromised, it doesn't you know kind of lead to a takedown of the entire network. Is there any prospect realistic prospect of trying to cut this off at the source and assuming for the moment that these did originate from Russia, and there's just been too many reports that they have for me not to believe that's the likely answer. We talked with the Russian ambassador. Antonov on balance power, and he said, Don't know what if we figure out where this comes from, will help you shut it down. We want to do this in a bilateral way. Is that sincere? Or could this be? Who was it? That said that war is the art of diplomacy by other means. Is it possible? This is a way of getting leverage in the United States for other things that Russia might want. Well, look, I'm not a Russia expert. But when I talked to colleagues of mine here that are I mean, you know, the timing here is remarkable, right? I mean, President Biden, you know, hands, you know, list of, you know, critical infrastructure sectors They're supposed to be, you know, off limits. And you know, and you know what we're seeing here right is, um you know a compromise. It's impacting shopping malls in schools and organizations that are decidedly not critical infrastructure. I don't know that there is an exact cause and effect, But I don't think that Russia is yet shedding any tears that we're seeing an impact. You know, in the United States and across our allies, So, um, you know The challenge, of course, is that threat actors even assuming that they're not directly controlled by by the Russian government, operating with level of impunity, and and something needs to change. To make that stop well and as President Biden, if not put down a red line, at least put down a marker that has to deliver on now, with President Putin. Having having delivered that message does he have to follow through? Yes, In a word. Um, because otherwise you're sending a message that we're not serious about our red lines. So what are his options right now? Well, his options would be, um, you know, certainly there have been, you know, sanctions already leveled. Um and and you know those those you know, continue to be there. Um, Beyond that you have on offensive cyber capabilities, thanks to Adam miles of the Chertoff group Still to come this hour, the three days in August 50 years ago that changed the world of finance. And commerce with Jeffrey Garden of the Yale School of Management and my exclusive wide ranging interview with Senate Banking Committee Chairman Sherrod Brown on his views of Fed policy, and whether vice chairman Randy Quarrel should step down at the end of his term in October. But first President Trump sues social media firms for keeping him from his audience. Our case Will prove this censorship is unlawful. It's unconstitutional and it's completely un American.

"Vaccines and their possible connection to heart inflammation. Apparently they're more than 1200 cases reported now. Shares in the M RNA vaccine makers are trading lower. On that list. We've got fighter stock is down more than 1% right now, and Moderna shares also being hard hit wt crude oil above 73 the barrel right now. U. S crude supplies down last week for 1/5 straight week. I'm Doug prisoner. And that is your Bloomberg business flesh. You're listening to Bloomberg Business Week with Carol Matter, and Bloomberg Quick takes Tim Stenkovic on Bloomberg Radio. So solar winds. Microsoft exchange email colonial pipeline JBs cyberattacks. They do feel like they're worsening and the frequency is picking up and Tim I recently spoke with Michael Chertoff, chairman and co founder, the Chertoff group, former secretary of Homeland security. I did so from Bloomberg's Qatar economic form, and we talked about a lot, including how companies and governments can protect themselves from cyberattacks. Here's a portion of that conversation. If you go back a number of years, re mainly worried about the issue of theft of money, impersonation of identity theft of intellectual property espionage that still continues. But now we're seeing more and more destructive and destructive attacks, including those that have an effect on critical infrastructure. And are really touching people in their everyday lives. This is clearly increasing as a more serious national security issue. One of the things that you hear about, as you go about work at the Chertoff group, and you work with clients and you're working with governments are working with companies and institutions. What is it that they are also seeing on a regular basis? I think the biggest recent stories ransomware, which is of course, infecting a network with an encryption that locks down all the data, and then saying, if you don't pay me money in Bitcoins, I'm going to throw the key away. You'll never get your data back. And that has the potential to be hugely disruptive. There have been hundreds of attacks on health care institutions and those attacks of ransomware make it impossible to actually carry out necessary medical things. Colonial Pipeline Ninja ransomware attack Brazil unique company company was a ransomware attack. So that is the emerging new threat. But when we continue to see the old fashioned, festive money and identity impersonation as well, You and I and our prep call for this. We're talking about how companies have been very lean and mean cutting costs, you know, just in time, just doing things when they need it. And in many ways, Wall Street has certainly applauded that move, and we've seen that play out in the financial markets. But I do wonder are a lot of companies institutions governments really prepared for maybe the cyber attacks to come. Well, Carrie, you're actually right. For many years. The mantra in the business community was, we needn't mean just in time. Don't have any access capacity that keeps keeps costs down, and it makes us hyper efficient. The flip side of hyper efficiency use your vulnerable. If something happens, and now you don't have a plan B. You know why they don't have an alternative way to carry out your mission Or you don't have an alternative way to store your data. So I do think it's causing businesses and governments to rethink Whether they need to build in a margin of safety and a margin of security against the possibility of some kind of a disaster. And by the way, let me shake a pandemic has been less than the same principle that you've got to have a backup plan because sometimes either mother nature Or criminals. Why didn't interfere with your plan? A. Well, let's talk about who's actually doing the cyber attacks. At this point. We know we saw the summit between President Biden and Putin and, um, you know Biden pretty much laying out that he understands that There are things going on in Russia that possibly likely that the president President Putin is aware of. I mean, that's part of the problem. Governments know there's stuff going on in their countries and their kind of allowing it. Well, some governments are allowing it now, with the Russians regime two types of bad actors dressing the SPR. The Russian intelligence service, which was behind the shoulder winds hack into the supply chain. But we've also seen criminal groups organized criminal groups based in Russia carrying out attacks. In other countries, and essentially, the tacit or even explicit understanding in Russia is if you're a criminal group as long as you carry out your crimes outside of Russia's borders. Russia. The Russian authorities will leave you around, and they do that, because sometimes they go to these very criminal groups and then listen to carry out attacks with a national security element. We sure that, for example in 2000 and seven in Estonia Where criminal groups acting at the behest to Russia attack east Syrian government and the Estonian financial system. So I think President Biden was quite right to be cleared about to Putin. But we know it's not just the intelligence agencies themselves, but it's the fellow travelers are in Russia that are carrying out a lot of these most devastating attacks. And and do you think governments need to be ready to launch? Attack a cyberattack back, basically go on offensive if they are attacked. Well, that raises the critical issue of deterrence and up to you Now we've typically done things like for criminal cases or impose sanctions, which have a certain amount of of deterrent impact, but not really as much as we need given what's going on there, and therefore, I think we need to get to the point. That there is a a cyber response where there is an attack, and that made me disabling the Attackers. Um, sure, servers or otherwise in different where the Attackers conduct of operations and maybe most important Follow the money. If you can get the money back. That is a major blow to the criminal works and one of the great stories out of colonial pipeline in the FBI was able to track Cryptocurrency students that were used to pay the ranch and I'm getting most of that money back. And if we can do that, That's going to be a major dent into being Shan't kids. These groups have Michael. One last question just got under a minute here. Have we seen the worst of it when it comes to cyber attacks, or you kind of getting ready for the big one? I'm afraid we haven't seen the worst times, particularly as tensions heat of geo. Politically, we may actually see attacks that are direct on critical infrastructure. We've seen Russian reconnaissance and our electric grid. They haven't done anything. But of course you have to ask. Why are they looking? And that's why we need to have the capability to make it clear that a response it causes a loss of life were very serious economic damage, where, in our view being the initiation of a hybrid conflict And we will respond forcefully and unequivocally and that was Michael Chertoff, former secretary of Homeland security. Speaking from the guitar economic form, you can sign up to see more from that event. At Bloomberg live dot com, including the full conversation and we're Financial like, Think about that. That would certainly be crippling. All right. You're listening to Bloomberg Business Week. Right now. A check on world the national news over to Nancy Lyon..

"Everybody way more coming up from Millie Vanilli formula is this way? Go out. People in the mouth. Teo mentioned terms shut up slave has now been entered into the Urban Dictionary. Does not mention us, which should not. I don't feel that's appropriate. But it is a definition sarcastic phrase. When used a something affect citizens or workers, and they can't do anything about it has nothing to do with United States, unfortunate historical exploitation of African immigrants and their Children. A person using the phrase he's included in the group of slaves. Thanks Omni Dave for adding that somebody wrote that out. Of course he did, He told us He told us about it. It's pretty good definition, so Cattle gate. Shadow Kate Shadow Gate. It was very interesting. What happened? You better go back a little bit until I get what you're going to talk about. Is that? What? I'm starting off Shadow gate. You start your starting right in the middle. You should shadow gate. It's the title Shadow Gates. Okay? You said shadow. Yes, there was a title of anything. I want you to introduce Milli Vanilli or whatever Her name is. I'm going to do it all. Okay. Well, simmer down Donna Summer. Shadow gate is what it's called. But it starts with millennial Millie, who does video reports. She's and she's millennium. I think she's 30 early 30, so she is a millennial old millennial. He's on the upper edge to lives in Ohio, and she has been a contractor for info wars for quite a while. I think five years at least, maybe some like that, and she does pieces just just pieces in Austin but also in Ohio, and she puts stuff together. I'm not exactly sure, but she's basically Akane. Doctrine it is tagged is millennial Milly. Her name is Millie Weaver. We've we've had clips from before. I like her. I think she's very angry, Very talented, Very talented. Very good. So she came out with it was billed as a quote unquote documentary. About an hour and 20 minutes on was called. It was titled What they don't want you to see. Did you see it all, John? Well, I was there was on Twitter and of course, it was said to be censored on Twitter. I don't know what that means that in sea, the other version and I watched the beginning of it. It's all that kind of stuff that we've kind of tore. But she does have a lot of new stuff. She digs up. She has a Funny way of going about things and looking at things, but I didn't watch the whole thing because I figure you're going to review it, and I want to be seven all over about an hour and 20 minutes long. It is not a documentary, it's ah long form video piece. Narrated, which is built around an interview with Tori Tori. We've played a clip from Torrey before time while back on the show. She was a contractor for government security services and Apparently, I don't believe it. But her endia has expired, which I don't think is a thing. But okay, and she's felt very comfortable I've had in the age that experience fact I've insisted on it from the but from the intelligence industry and well stuffed talks about you might need some classification. That doesn't expire with dubious, but she's very entertaining. We played clips of her about Seth Rich, and she she knows so much. Then she and a guy named Patrick I forget his last name for a second that he also worked in Security service intelligence agencies that he's had a book out about this. So everything he said, was not really new. But I'll break in. And the reason I say it's not really a documentary is because and I know it was kind of bother soon, but I just try to relax and not pay attention to it. There's a lot of B roll stock footage, some of which I've used in the past for pitch videos. You know, it's people walking in offices, screens. No close ups matrix like stuff a lot of filler to overlay the story, and the story is very compelling. And I'm just going to give you the synopsis, which is quite interesting. It. Talks about. It leads into it properly and they do quite a good job. It's so dense Tina who knows a lot about this stuff, she said. She couldn't quite follow it. I think they packed too much in and the visuals didn't always correlate to what they were saying, because it was stock footage, but otherwise it was not a chore to watch through it. When Brennan John Brennan CIA when he left government before he came back in which Wass Where did he leave? He went out for a while. Yeah, I can look at him. He became involved in the true military industrial complex, which is what these two interviewees are talking about, which is contractors. Oh, and we know this. Of course, there's probably wanna maybe even two million people in the United States. You have a high security clearance because contractors are the ones that really run everything. Everything is farmed out. And that's why you have this revolving door of homeland Security and CIA and NSA going out and doing well. You have like the Chertoff group, and they do all the scanners, body scanners and crap for L three company for airports after they make sure that everyone's afraid and we gotta have them. Then they go into private practice and they make it happen. So Brennan was also running a collection of these groups. Really above all of them and there's and there's names and there's documents and there's clear trails and these are the companies that we hear about all the day all the times you left government service for a few years, became CEO of the analyst corporation Test, the analyst corporation Lead attack. Right after acquisition acquisition by Global Strategies Group in 2007 Growth as a global intelligence solutions division of Global's North American technology business, G tech.

Division of Global's North American technology business G. Tech before returning to government service with the Obama Administration as Homeland Security Adviser in January two, thousand nine was everything was in place. So, you have to think of these these companies that were under attack. such as clearview AI clearview a I is the company that is. Scraped home of millions of pictures and it's created a facial recognition database. So they're one of the people who are contracted really a lot of these marketing companies that that get more location data get other marketing data, data brokers they combine data from credit card purchases central to build up a profile of people, and so the the Tack Corporation was working for. I don't they were contracting or what the exact structures, but they have all of these different groups who are. aggregating this data and creating profiles of each person. which is just like the marketing guys do except they went one step further because they are intelligence agencies and clearly this is all i. mean you just look at snowden how wishy washy this all was pure call. We did the first hot pockets tour Now one of our Dame's who actually lent me the. the original vehicle to do to do that tour. She was Assis-. Admin.

"To mention. The term is shut up slave has now been entered into the urban dictionary. Does not mention US, which it should not I. Don't feel that's appropriate but it is a circa definition sarcastic phrase when used. As something affects citizens or workers, and they can't do anything about it has nothing to do with the United States unfortunate historical exploitation of African immigrants and their children. The person using the phrase es included in the Group of slaves. Thanks, Omni? Dave. For adding somebody wrote that up. Of course he did he told us. He told us about it. It's pretty good definition. So Shadow Gate. Shadow can't. Shadow. was very interesting. What happened you better, go back a little bit until to what you're gonNA talk about. Isn't that what I'm starting off shadow Gatam Save Your. Start Your starting right in the middle you should shadow gate. It's the. It's the title shadow gates cable. Easiest said Shadow. He didn't say it was the title of anything. I want you to introduce Millie Bonilla. Name is I'm going to do it all. Okay well. See my down Donna summer. Shadow Gate is what it's called. But it starts with Millennial Milli who does video reports she? Thinks she's thirty early thirty. So she is a millennial she's a millennial. He's a on the upper edge to lives in Ohio and she has been a contractor for Info wars for quite a while I think a five years at least maybe something like that and she does pieces just pieces and Austin. But in also in Ohio and she put stuff together I'm not exactly sure but she's basically a contractor and it is tagged as Millennial Milli her name is millie weaver. We've we've had clips from. Yeah. She's I like her I think she's very. Very talented very talented. Very good. So she came out with a it was billed as a quote unquote documentary. About an hour and twenty minutes. And was called or was titled what they don't want you to see. Did you see it at all John. Well I was I was on twitter and of course, it was said to be censored on twitter. I don't know what that means 'cause. I didn't see the other version and I watched the beginning of and it's all that kind of stuff that we've kind of talk. But she does have a lot of new stuff she digs up she has a funny way of going about things and looking at things. But I didn't watch the whole thing because I figured you were going to review it WanNa be stepping all over the interview. So it's about an hour and twenty minutes long. It is not a documentary it's a long form video piece. Narrated, which is built around an interview with Tori. Now Tori, we've played a clip from Tory before time while back on the show. She was a contractor for governments security services, and apparently I don't believe it but her. NDA has expired which I don't think is a thing but okay and she felt very comfortable she. India's that experience fact I've insisted on it from the but from the intelligence industry. About, you might need some classification. That doesn't expire. Dubious you. But she's very entertaining. We played clips of her about seth rich and she she knows so much. And she and. A guy named Patrick. I. Forget his last name for. Second That He also worked at Security Service Intelligence agencies that he's had a book out about this. So everything he said was not really new but Albritton and the reason I say it's not really a documentary is because It was kind of bothersome but I just try to relax not pay attention to it. There's a lot of b-roll stock footage, some of which I've used in the past for pitch videos. You know as people walking offices, screens, you know. Close ups. Matrix, like stuff a lot of filler to overlay the story and the story is very compelling and I'm just going to give you the synopsis, which is quite. Interesting. It talks about why they'd leads into it properly and they do quite a good job. Well, it's so dense tina lot about the stuff she said she couldn't quite follow. It's I. Think they pack too much in. The. Visuals didn't always correlate to what they were saying because it was stock footage but otherwise, it was not a chore to watch through it. When Brennan John Brennan CIA when he left government before he came back which was With it he leave. Because he went out for a while yeah, I can look it up. He became involved in the true military industrial complex, which is what these two interviewees are talking about, which is contractors. And this we know this of course, there's probably one or maybe two million people in the United States who have. High security clearance because contractors are the ones that really run everything everything is farmed out, and that's why you have this revolving door of. Homeland Security, and CIA, and NSA going out and doing. Well, you have the Chertoff Group and and they do all the scanners body scanners crap for the L. Three Company for Airports after they make sure that everyone's afraid and we gotta have them then they go into private practice and they make it happen. So Brennan was also running a collection of these groups. Really above all of them and there's and there's names and there's documents and there's clear trails and these are the companies that we hear about all the day all the time such government service for a few years became CEO of the analysts corporation tests attacked the analyst Corporation in the United Lead Tac after its acquisition acquisition by global strategies group in two, thousand, seven and growth as global intelligence solutions. Division of Global's North American technology business G.

"Of Bloomberg Radio. I'm Jim Gray, also U. S. Authorities have long wanted access to encrypted data to conduct criminal investigations. However, allowing this access is controversial and some say too risky, especially with the covert 19 outbreak, which has highlighted the increasing severity of cyber threats, including alleged Chinese hacking of vaccine data. Here to tell us why law enforcement doesn't need a backdoor to data is Michael Chertoff, former secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and founder of the Chertoff Group, a risk management and security consulting company. Tell us how the French were able to conduct a successful investigation into an encrypted communications network without access to a back door. You're obviously over. We don't have speakers that I had a technique that allowed them to share from vent encryption and there are a number of different way he might be able to do that. I'm here to be ableto actor, the endpoint device that Found the information on it. That's been decrypted or some floor and encryption. Or some ability to use the credentials of authorized Reader in order to insure yourself in to look at the material, but the point is that they were used technological ingenuity with that requiring the platform. The week ended encryption in a way that would make people vulnerable across the board. Explain it a little more depth why you would oppose Congress, forcing tech companies to give law enforcement on Lee an encryption backdoor. Because there is a law enforcement only encryption, backdoor backdoor move you think, use the floor. The encryption exploited by somebody knows what floor is it? And that anybody who find out what that floor is, will have the ability to break the encryption on the longest day of the party, a law enforcement Help me for anybody who's using the platform and as we see in our day More and more people are working from home worn more sense that you're coming online. And one of the main ways we perfected to encrypt it. Oh, you think that there would be more exposure to cyber attacks and people getting data? Private data of users were no question that you put it back door, or do you think And you're weak encryption. We've been here for everybody. There's no continued weakening for one pushed the math, Max And then the issue is for someone else They'll know support that And the weird thing is, yes. Dad, You're one of the rebels has the people of Kei. We have the issue of sometimes the government used confidential things. For example, there was a shadow brokers that critical tools that were used by the U. S government, you know, hacking the certain targets. Now it was stolen and descended over the Internet. So it's a little bit like King everybody. We'd like you to have a weak lock on your front door sort of policed and entered the estimates Search one without recognizing that for a week for the burglaries Well, What do you say to those who say Well, we have to weigh the benefits to law enforcement against the problems that we would expose. People, too, If we gave law enforcement this backdoor in that law enforcement is more important here. Love. I think it's long with your reasons are very important to the table and make a case against criminals. Having everybody put it risk more criminals does not present as in 1000 training, I would say you look at the examples that we sighted in in historical have written about Encryption. The government after we had many tools. Ready, General, Where are you? To pursue people who are doing their thinks that much you enough to have been a work 20 or 30 years ago. So, for example, what they call medic that What's your name? What directly address of the sender. You dressing the recipient that is already unencrypted. You have the unencrypted because the platform he's able to decipher and direct the package story. I have to go. The acting was enormous amount, invaluable information. Mom because it shows connecting between people who might have. Well, if you were the terrorist, they're criminals. So that's the kind you can already do you Have you seen example that would use about the Saudi Our shooter. They didn't need to have a home to know. He was coming to our card. It was communicating telephonically with known her once you move that You knew everything you need to do to escort this guy out of the country. So a lot of times what happened? There's an obvious way to get information but overlooked. It's not properly understood, and therefore breaking encryption doesn't really come the problem and this becomes kind of easy way he is since your results. You write that mandating encryption back doors will empower authoritarian governments. Tell us what you mean by that? Well, I mean, one thing with the Chinese and the Russians aren't picking upon more prevalent. Years. If you have a platform that people in our country you've got to give us the ability to see what they're saying, and if necessary to shut down with this thing. And that encryption is a threat to Chinese and Russians authoritarian because what it means that people may be communicating in a way that the government's not going to read. And you know, even there. Okay. I think you are concerned about government intrusion into the private discussion and political virus. Political views that people are reflect upon. Three. Whether they're you're comfortable reducing the ability to encrypt in the face of that. And how do you think us companies would suffer if law enforcement gets up blanket access? Well, what happens is that companies that are not Americans, their new have so encryption were simply wanted bearing the business. That is now being operated for us. And you see one of the reasons, for example, that some of the Chinese companies are now being banned, like going in here from having a certain kind of Of communication posted. There's precisely because of the concerns the Chinese you're using that To surveil with nine. The U. S were to create a bath doors. What We're beginning years. Europeans and people from other countries would say We don't want you using Martin product hears us communiqu fired. And so I think that's very short sighted. Economic complains of, or force mint standpoint to try to weaken encryption. Thank.

"Was a scene in Portland, Oregon last night as clashes continue to escalate between protesters and federal forces sent in by the Trump Administration of Protect Federal Property. Federal agents have been criticised for using excessive force against civilians and early this morning. Agents tear gas. Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler as he was speaking to protesters. The heightened unrest there comes Justus President Trump announced that he's sending hundreds of federal law enforcement officers to Chicago and Albuquerque, Tio. Drive down. Violent crime is part of the anti crime initiative Operation Legend in the segment. We'll talk about the latest developments in Portland and explore when it's lawful for federal forces to police cities. Joining us is Josh Campbell, law enforcement of National Security correspondent for CNN. He's also the author of Crossfire Hurricane Inside Donald Trump's War on the FBI. And he's in Portland now and Josh, Welcome to the program. Thanks. Good morning to you too great to be with you Glad to have you and I know your voice is a little bit Shall we say, compromised by tear gas, and I hope that it will hold out here with us. We also Michael Chertoff back with us on form executive chairman and co founder of the Chertoff group. Former Secretary of Homeland Security under President George W. Bush. She's the author of Exploding Data, Reclaiming Our Cyber Security in the Digital Age. And Michael Chertoff. Good to have you It's good to be on Let me actually begin with you, Michael Chertoff, and let's begin just by talking about the fact that this has been going on for over 50 nights and days. In Portland. Now the mayor has been tear gassed, so it's getting a lot of attention, obviously, and what we're talking about here is federal agents without local support, which many have said exacerbates and escalates the situation. Unmasked. Ah sees me unmarked vans and the generic police patches simply detaining people. Some are saying these air like kidnaps allegations of arrest with no probable cause and people taken away in on mark cars use of excessive force. I just want to get right to the heart of it with you. How lawful is this? And, well, you know, the government federal government does have the authority to protect federal govt and part of mission of the federal Protective Services to do that, But I got to be related to protecting federal property. It's not relations to roam around the streets. And apprehend people or detain them simply because they might have done something. Additionally, if you're going to deal with the issue of demonstrators excusing crowd control, you have to train you how to do that, and I think we need additional personnel have been deployed. Not including people who come from the border and Operation environment border are not really trained to deal with several demonstrations that have First Amendment protection and maybe the biggest Think they're having is not coordinated ST Nobles I'm typically when the federal government gets engaged in a law enforcement operation is with the concurrence and coordination, state and local Sauron's The acting homeland security chief. We're talking about Chad. Wolf has said that he has the authority to do this. His background is in transportation security, but that's besides the point. But he said That not only is very authority to do this, but that's been AH brought out. For example, by Kelly McCann Ini, the press secretary for President Trump's administration, she says the court house is on fire. There were fireworks set that officers and she cited 40 U. S. Code 13 15. I'm not sure what this is Michael shirt off, but Essentially getting back to what you said it supposedly gives the right to bring in these federal agents in these federal officers to protect federal property. Ah, the distinction here that you're making. I think this is the most significant one. It's Ah! The right to do that, but not necessarily the right to do things that not only they are not empowered to do but have no training and doing like urban policing and crowd control and civil unrest of all the rest of it. And I hate what we've seen on some of the videos reporting is they've gotten pretty far afield from the actual federal property. On also the tactics you're using. When they want to question somebody became them are more of what you would see if you were doing it in an operational environment above border conflict. Rather than in city. And I think he caused trouble in fact uniforms Resemble military uniforms and military has objected to that and again, it creates confusion about what he thought. And if I go to Josh Campbell on this, you've been observing everything that's going on. As I said, You've been no hit by tear gas, and you've seen the protests. A lot of a lot of these protesters are you know they're there, for example, walls of moms, and there are people who are just Not at all and teeth of people or ah, radicals, anarchists. They're people who are concerned about what happened on what's been happening in terms of racial justice and They're out there For that reason, primarily a east. That's what I'm reading. But you do have probably protesters who are on this and the reports that air coming in Well, doing some things that are certainly unlawful by any standards. That's right. And I think that it's important to look at the timeline first and how these protests began. And this began in the wake of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis at the hands of police officers and these protests. We saw them across the nation, the city by city, including here in Portland. And what started as calls for racial justice. Calls for holding police officers accountable, quickly morphed around the July 4th holiday. When President Trump sent in federal resource is in order to protect federal statues here in the city of Portland. This was the part of an effort that we saw in different cities, and you really saw the protest movement began to shift a bit. They still are calling for racial justice. They're still calling for the end of excessive use of force by police officers. But it took on a new tone where you then saw protesters ordering the federal resources to depart their city. They didn't want to see this influx of federal resource is and night after night. We've seen protests overwhelmingly peaceful during the day. You know you have crowds that air out and I think it's important to note and I think it's important because I, you know, I consume a lot of news and including Nearly everything that comes out of the White House, and what's being framed by the White House is that thesame of Portland is in a state of bedlam..

"To another issue that has come up now. And that is the demonstrations in the wake of the tragic killing of George Floyd demonstrations that have continued in some parts of country, including in Portland, Oregon, where I guess they had something like 54 55 straight days of it. And now we have federal officers. I guess I'll call them agent. Something showing up is a little unclear where they come from. What is the proper breakdown between the federal government? State local authorities when it comes to policing civil unrest. Well show again, depending on the nature of the law enforcement issue. They're different authorities, For example, the federal government does have the right and the obligation to protect federal buildings, Federal courthouse, But that means really the perimeter around those structures, and maybe the immediate education parts is not a license to go on patrol in the streets. Because somebody somewhere in this city might decided some point to attack a federal building. Now, the federal government also usually stands ready to assist state and local officials if they request that assistance. In this case, my understanding is Portland has not requested and then the final thing which we've seen in the last few days. Is it apparently operational. Border Patrol enforcement agents who are used to functioning at a border environment have been the kind of tip of the spear on the law enforcement presence. In Portland, and that means they're dressed in crazy military garb, and they operate with a degree of force that is appropriate in a border environment. But not you see when you're dealing with demonstrations in First Amendment rights, and I think this is trouble, a lot of people, including be honest people who used to be with the agency and people who are in the agency. Are they trained to deal with that sort of that environment. No. I mean, the whole point of these tactical border Patrol agents is they're trained to deal in an environment where you can have me up against drug gangs. There could be firearms you could be dealing with snipers are when you're really almost in a crazy I'm military situation. That is not what we're seeing important. Yes, There may be some looting, and there may be some violence and that's what police normally deal with. But it's not the kind of environment where you have hosing crazy Military force. Thank you so much for all your time today really appreciate Michael that is Michael Chertoff. Of the Chertoff group Coming up new SEC rules governing proxy advisor firms Tom Codman of the U.

"This is the balance of power with David Westin on Bloomberg radio still to come this hour we talk to labor secretary Eugene Scalia about the surprise made jobs numbers but first the brutal killing of George Floyd led to a wave of protests across the country and is now being followed by a wave of proposals for police reform I talked to former secretary of homeland security Michael Chertoff about how the protests we've seen across the country have been handled I think everybody recoils with horror and outrage at the video of what looks to be a murder by a police officer against him a man who is incapacitated with his hands handcuffed and I think that really is it a blow had disappeared as a country and that in some ways has a national security impact as well I think most of the demonstrations were peaceful and reflected genuine outrage and concern but not violence there were a minority of people who try to exploit keys hi due to agitate and create violence because of their ideology or in some cases to loot are in order you can carry out a criminal gains but the key is to respond in a way that's effective but measured and respects the constitution and the rule of law I think eventually we got to that place but there was a moment when there was discussion about bringing active duty troops and that would have been really backfired in terms of national security and national unity national security national unity but also would be effective I mean via larger troops are not necessarily trained to do a crowd control node B. act opposite of what you want because you have people who are not properly trained and you would either have an over reaction which would escalate matters or something it was completely misdirected and even example there was an episode in how Washington where a couple of National Guard helicopters flew very low like fifty feet off the ground in a misguided effort and somebody thought up to try to disperse to control the crab now that is a tactic you would use in Fallujah not in Farragut square and a course in a very negative reaction and now they're investigating how this came to be but that's exactly what you don't want to be doing if you're trying to respect free speech and control the crowd in a way that doesn't simply put more gasoline on the fire this awful incident you say a murder really we saw are you sure yeah yeah it's hard to describe it any other way and approaches about come on top of a pandemic and shut down an economic severe downturn how do you put all those things together can we reopen just affect our re opening plans well I think you know whether it has been re opening yeah it's been laid out in every jurisdiction that generally speaking is staging a way to be gradual and make sure you're not reverting back to significant increase in the number of mutations now I will say that with the demonstrations Jewish two things first of all somebody re opening actually got delayed because people who might have opened up a restaurant chili's for outside seating kept him shot because they were concerned about violence in the street more seriously I'm concerned I think everybody is that the proximity of people particularly if they were not wearing masks could actually result in a spike up in the incidence of the virus and then that would wind up dialing us back to a more lockdown situation hopefully enough people wore masks and the fact that they were outside will mitigate that possibility but we will not know for a couple weeks do you have additional thoughts was of the proposals for police reform things like a national registry limiting the immunity of police officers barring certain actors like chuckles does it make sense of a federal standard on that well I think you want to have a federal minimum standard just like we do have a right to and that's a federal standard he exact weight applies in practice may have to be Keller depending on the jurisdiction but there's no question that there is a national interest in preserving protecting civil rights of a minority as everybody else and there has been a disturbing escalation and unexplained police violence that is troubling and me to re calibrate how we use the police and what we expected the police finally on is somewhat different but it really very important subject what about the issue of of mail in ballots of different ways about it because a lot of people are concerned about the possibly going to two polling places come November the president said it released a fraud it can't be relied upon there is concern about how we maintain the security particularly given the extras we've had recently with Russia and others of trying to tamper with our system so I would say first of all there's no evidence of widespread fraud involving mail in ballots I was years ago actually prosecuted cases of someone committing a fraud with Malan Babson he balanced rate ten votes I do see no evidence of that he is by the way much more secure than any kind of online voting would be and I'm sure in terms of Russian tampering I would not worry about mail in ballots I would be concerned about making sure we get the balance to people quickly so it's not a last minute issue with the postal service and that we also encourage him to return your votes early enough so we can you know act correct him and then tabulate but there are a couple things I would be careful about first of all we need to make sure we secure and enhance the security of the databases we use that collect information about who's registered to vote we also need to have a paper backup service or is it an attack which I'm having compassion cage the online registry would go back and look manly thanks to Chertoff group executive

the department of homeland security and at Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley so thank you so much for being with us give us a sense as you talk to your clients as you do I know around the world what questions are they asking about what this pandemic is doing to security questions well right now yeah many folks read about implications of the geopolitical stability at one thinks about North Korea where it indications that the leader they're concerned may impact the L. that is highly unstable country and implications if they were to have an implosion or leadership vacuum that could lead to instability it could have all an intervention by the United States to secure the border and nuclear weapons you control in China a lot of concern there and Iran is well satellite imagery is showing that they are actually engaged in building out massive large grave sites because they're not with the whole levels of fatalities James in particular any our clients are concerned about instability and what that might mean there similarly on the Russian side of the equation I think the oil crisis it has been very problematic for Russia and their economy is now smaller than the GDP of Italy and Amir lifeline and so at a time like this may be tempted to actually arrange and use it the card of iris is an excuse for authoritarian in the impact here try to engage in some aggressive behavior externally to distract the domestic public funds difficulties in the economy and lastly China's definitely the big wild card whether it's how they're gonna handle the attacks occur criticisms matter and helping him with the virus in the first place and what the implications are there for both training and global supply chain stated yes so as has a practical matter when people are put in a corner as they sometimes can lash out in ways that could be counterproductive and you just name for places very different one from the other each which may feel that they're being backed in a quarter are people more worried about actual physical activity that is troops and guns and like the gunships Iran has been circling naval ships in the Gulf on or they're worried about things like cyber attacks I think he already is him into this is been publicly reported I'm not saying anything that's classified there are a clear indication that adversaries like China Russia and even China or in fact already using disinformation and a lot of the internet a similar to what took place in the twenty sixteen interference with our elections and so not only are we seeing that but as you said David cybersecurity has become a very big problem as most companies now or to work remotely that remote working environment with distributed actually expand a tax for cyber hackers and that is where we're seeing as well a significant uptick in aggressive cyber activity not just by criminals but he said by state actors how fast can a company really address the cyber security issue because as you say Chad we're all relying upon the internet and and remote working much more than we ever imagined it would be a lot of information going back and forth that were not in the workplace for can a company respond fairly quickly an upgrade on the cyber security front it is all the good news today is that there are a number of great companies that can in a remote work environment however a lot of companies the difficulty is the demand for those services are at an all time high as you can imagine so getting a provider and getting it quickly is difficult the thing I would say is it unfortunately the number of the current solution providers room working and then for example whether take care and have only and as a result of them that should have been and they're signing on it the stock was on fire and then unfortunately each they ended up losing almost twelve billion dollars market capitalization for the peak to the trough the CEO had to apologize to the public the band for the number of customers including government account I think the point your radiators keys right now we're a private company or a private citizen doubling down on your cyber security today is critical in this environment chit chat what about things other than nation states and particularly the possibly of failed states and refugees pouring across borders and to what extent do you assess that as a as a national security threat potentially to Europe or to the United States ideology on it the overall collision it's much more likely to be an issue the United States Mexico currently is mostly in a warmer climate which has been beneficial because the coronavirus appears to be affected similarly to other sister coronaviruses I needed humidity is about to happen in the US in the northern hemisphere is going into our personalities and in the other image here is going into day called in season so it it is very likely that you can see a spike in cases in Mexico on our southern border healthcare system this is rational they don't have the resources and as you know they're actually very dependent on the price of oil and there are been crushed and and on the economic side there so I think the United States has been bulking up he along the southern border or that is in preparation for what could be a mass migration from the south okay thank you so much I really appreciate that jet that's Chad sweet and

Management Agency he is helping to manage the response which is what they doing in any natural disaster be it an earthquake or hurricane a forest fire or flood in this case it's largely logistical issue what they will do is coordinate with other federal agencies and with the private sector to acquire the kinds of good gin and products that are necessary in order to respond to this crisis so it made me badgered may be tense he may be a medical supplies they can they can contract for one of the things which has been done in the past is the military through FEMA has been able to provide medical facilities field hospitals even hospital ships to deal with emergencies so I think that's likely to be the main emphasis for FEMA and then as you mentioned earlier the border how will how she wants to be an important element for our DHS isn't likely apostle the government somewhere has actually stockpiled some of the medical equipment if needed we heard the vice president all point construction companies to volunteer to give up so they're I think they're called in ninety five masks that can be used for medical purposes well is it possible that either in the military or home security someplace else that effect people would have something of a warehouse with these things in well there will be some amateur stockpile not really DHS which is not really stockpile things but there will be some such thing stockpiled in the military some stockpile with HHS are some in the private sector the difficulty here is scale usually you're you're stockpiling for a relatively local regional disaster and I was in the military stockpiling because it has for shoes project the issue is how do you spell that for national crisis and I think that is why you're seeing an emphasis on trying to get more masks had more passion more medical products produced as quickly as possible can the military help through things like the corps of engineers has something that governor Cuomo called upon the government to do to build more hospital beds is that something you would have coordinated with the army on yeah I we I'm a white yet yes we do would be coordinating with the army about well what kind of medical capabilities they can make available hydration there a couple of hospital ships and that can be have moved off shore and be used as hospitals you would work with the army corps of engineers for example to go set up an emergency medical facility in a stadium or in larger arena all of these are things that can be done the challenger is going to be scale and priority is it possible to both really pull out all the stops to everything possible to fight these fires at the same time we don't let some other thing slip up in between national security and HHS computers have been hacked and apparent of tension to slow down the response of the you know so much you've written a fine book on the question of cyber security are we more volatile right now on other fronts because we are so consumed with this coronavirus show application mix in one area actually the risk has diminished Sir we've been obviously worried for several years now about the possibility of attacks on crowded locations the entertainment locations or schools or religious institutions that risk is gonna go down because there are creepy crafts and show the target sure it will be less but on the other side cyber is going to be more of an issue and that's particularly true because what you have now is people working from home we used to go to the office and their shoes he's may not be secure in a way that is necessary to protect your business institutions other government agencies from being hacked and that's why I think a big urgent requirement is going to be had to elevate the quality cybersecurity now you have all of these individuals for using your home computers to log on to work what is the state of preparedness and the private sector not the public sector the private sector for possible violations of through cyber because as you point out will rely on it more than we ever have in history I think many companies are not well prepared finish because they hadn't

"chertoff group" Discussed on 790 KABC

"Former executive homeland security co founder and executive chairman of the Chertoff group thank you for joining us he is a great book outscored exploding data reclaiming our cyber security in the digital age and I let me start by doing saying this I've been on the radio for a long long time and when it comes to talking about security people security cyber security it's almost like the Pink Floyd song comfortably numb it seems to me that people are okay giving up some of their security and not realizing that it chips away chips away trips away and at some point it's going to affect your insurance is going to affect their jobs our future and as you point out your book it may get to the point in future were were actually changing our behavior because we're so monitored that you don't want your boss to see what you saw what you went what medicines you're taking how fast you're going in your car because we're now being recorded everywhere with smart homes and smart cars and Fitbit's and what you're buying you point is all on the book and you get some amazing examples there chilling I think that's exactly right I see you know part of the problem is people tend to look at each individual request for data as if it's separate and what they don't understand is now engaged between the cloud and the availability of data brokers they will sell your data it is possible for somebody to collect all the different pieces and actually get a very detailed picture of your life and at some point you get two were talking about getting in China which is a social credit score where you're evaluated based on you know how you live what you eat where you go how much exercise you can gauge who your friends are when you search for online and your eyes if you use a good vision or their actions and that affects your employment your ability of a rent a house or your educational and well in your book the sink was chilling to me you give examples of of and the guy Allen who becomes a jihadist induced you see the progression there and how you're able to monitor and then you give a couple who buys a doll that they can actually listen and learn and it accommodate your kid is actually has language skills and a bit always listening it has a high frequency tone though the can link up with other products in your house like your smart TV and can collect data that you don't have any idea that's collecting and then you show a third bomb example is a guy named Carl who is an attorney who has a high level of awareness when it comes to privacy because he's a privacy attorney yet another love the the term digital exhaust his Fitbit and the things he's doing as far as how he's ordering and with the smart refrigerator he still pointing out a huge footprint even though he thinks he's not and then of course you take it to the the nth degree of the future on how information can be collected but I don't think people I still don't understand and I don't know why they're not more motivated I mean I look at is Russia and leaping to the Russia cyber attack but there should be outrage on both sides of the aisle with Intel agencies at center and yet with some of the answers are we do the same thing and it's just part of the way we act today and it's used as a tool campaigning tool by other countries does that worry you in a big way and I think you're you're right people do feel comfortably now I'm I mean it's a little bit like story by boiling the frog anywhere if you turn the heat up first please five doesn't realize being bored that part of it is because frankly people feel overwhelmed and they're not quite sure which Lucien Asian therefore there's a tendency to kind of hurt your eyes and you get what I'm so poor record of you in the book is give people some real trips about we're taking you to reduce their exposure recognizing that there are some limits but also to talk about what we need to have our government to and how quick you to make sure we're protecting ourselves and taking account of the new environment one out of our laws are integrated I mean for instance with the cyber attack what is what's what's the nation's response and how you calibrate a response to cyber attack were or the or or technology is moving so fast what is the appropriate retaliation or do we not get to hear about the retaliation are we doing quietly is is there a strategy do we even know does our government have one well you won't hear about everything but I will say one of the big discussions now is exactly what is the right response to a cyber attack importing that depends upon what we mean by an attack I mean generally for example we don't regard spy or espionage act of war it's been going on generations and for centuries I'm on the other hand if someone were to actually chase down a significant part of the power grade or the water at pumping stations or something and actually that would be potentially an act of war and right now there's a debate about how to calibrate your response you don't want to escalate to something that's overly aggressive right but you also don't want lessons to answer so in that sense I think we're still very much a work in progress also we're do you know so many folks are not trusting the government you were one of the co authors of the patriot act which a lot of advocates privacy advocates say was over reach from your perspective you're in a different situation you're you at that point our guided with keep our country safe do you think was misunderstood the patriot act I think it is often misunderstood I mean eight people have exhibited things through which had nothing to do with the patriot act including for example authorized in the war in Iraq and things of that sort where we really designed as you wish two things allow information sharing among different agencies it had been prohibited from sharing and then equalising the government's authorities in the digital world what they were in the aloe world but what I think was not well frankly maybe part of your government was not very good at explaining what is the degree to which all of these powers are being a revised by the courts and actually you know quite regulated now obviously there were some tweaks afterwards and it's fair because you see are something operation practice sometimes some unintended consequences by I do think it can be drop a little bit of a kind of a mess the call character it also looks great I can tell you the book is great in in open your eyes as an individual to going this isn't a knock you if you shouldn't be comfortably numb because down the road when you're not going somewhere because your employer may know or you're not eating something because your insurance company may know or you're driving a certain way because the GPS is talking to the satellite radio in your car the internet radio at people don't connect the dots and ends pretty stunning I gotta ask you before we go so what kind of digital exhausted do you put out knowing what you know so I try to be careful I'm now I'm not an addict by being lost the grades but when I signed up for something I ask myself why do I want what do I get out of it and one of my sacrifice sometimes it's worth it for example if I lose you PS in order to get someplace I realize that you're my location but it's worth it for me to be able to get to my destination but I don't use social media and there are other things I don't do because its value to me is outweighed by the risks and that's really my message to individuals you have to be mindful and weigh the upside and downside of signing up for something the book really does a great drama complaining Dallas morning exploding data reclaiming our cyber security in the digital age by Michael Chertoff of anybody knows about the stuff he does a former sec reformers security co founder and executive chairman of the Chertoff group in the Twitter's AT shirt off group the website
