Navy Adm. Michael Rogers, U.S. Cyber Command chief and director of the National Security Agency, has said there has been a “fundamental change” in how the U.S. government utilizes and shares intelligence as a result of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, DoD News reported Thursday.

Jim Garamone writes Rogers, also chief of the Central Security Service, gave the remarks Wednesday during a panel discussion at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.

“Never underestimate the ability of a trauma — in the shape of 9-11 — to drive fundamental change in hierarchical organizations that are usually resistant to change,” said Rogers, an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 for 2016.

He also cited the U.S. government’s efforts to integrate the Intelligence Community with the military and law enforcement as well as the need for the government to adapt to threats posed by the Islamic State militant organization, Garamone reports.

“There is no one, single threat or methodology here — you are looking at an opponent that is using multiple methods, multiple techniques,” he added.
