Vice Adm. Michael Rogers appeared before a Senate committee Tuesday for his confirmation hearing to become the next head of the National Security Agency and U.S. Cyber Command, FierceGovernmentIT reported Wednesday.

David Perera writes Rogers told the Senate Armed Services Committee Tuesday that he believes the U.S. military should use a proactive method in cybersecurity.

“Our networks are inherent to our way of life; their vulnerability is the key concern,” Rogers said, according to the report.

“A strong and deterrent defense, along with robust, resilient networks, will alleviate that vulnerability,” he added.

Rogers has recommended using new technology to monitor cybercriminals’ activities before and during an attack, Perera reports.
