Vice Adm. Michael Rogers, head of the U.S. Navy’s cyber unit, has urged lawmakers to pass a bill authorizing the government and private sector to share threat intelligence data, National Journal reported Wednesday.

Brendan Sasso writes Rogers, President Obama’s nominee to lead both the National Security Agency and U.S. Cyber Command, has also vowed to boost the defense system of the government’s computer network.

Rogers told the Senate Armed Services Committee that a set of cybersecurity guidelines must be in place for protecting critical infrastructures such as banks and electric utilities, according to the report.

He also supports the removal of phone records from NSA’s database, the report says.

Sasso writes that Rogers believes Ukraine’s computer and communications systems are under a cyber attack.
