Richard Ledgett, deputy director at the National Security Agency, has called on several countries to jointly develop international standards for cyber regulations, the Aspen Daily News reported Sunday.
Dorothy Atkins writes that Ledgett described to an Aspen Meadows campus audience his belief that a lack of international norms to regulate cyberspace could be dangerous.
“It’s a very, very rich cyber threat environment,” he told the forum.
Ledgett also shared his views on the state of NSA more than a year after the disclosures by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, according to the report.
“When people say there are no damages with the disclosures, they are categorically wrong. Our hope is that they’re not catastrophically wrong,” Ledgett told the forum.
