NSA Nominee Michael Rogers on Individual Rights in Tech-Heavy World

Vice Adm Michael Rogers (1)Michael Rogers, a Navy vice admiral who has been nominated to become the next leader of the National Security Agency and U.S. Cyber Command, advocated for protecting individual rights in an interview with Defense News published Sunday.

Zachary Fryer-Briggs writes Rogers, who spoke to Defense News in March 2013, said it is the country’s job to ensure that its “power and structure” does not infringe on individual rights.

Rogers, who currently heads the Navy’s cyber warfare programs, also said that such liberties are could be vulnerable with the proliferation of computers.

“Cyber blurs this a little bit so there is always this tension. It is a healthy tension. I am always mindful,” he said.

Rogers also discussed work to refine the rules of engagement in cyber missions and to examine military over-reliance on command and control technologies.
