Admiral Mike Rogers, the new leader of the National Security Agency and Cyber Command at the Defense Department, certainly has taken a different approach from his predecessor, General Keith Alexander. Right out of the gate, Admiral Rogers noted that the NSA had a public image issue and that it had lost some of its credibility with the American public.

That fresh take was welcomed by many. While continuing to tackle those issues, Admiral Rogers has also stuck to some existing themes, namely that American businesses need to step up and do more to protect themselves from cyber attacks. The comments by Admiral Rogers come as hopes for any legislative solution to cyber security are effectively disappearing this Congress. Election season, leadership changes, and a host of competing demands have made it fairly clear that - barring some disastrous event - another year will go by without Congress passing a law to address private sector cyber security.
