We continue our coverage here the cyber threat and -- push inside -- the beltway for more comprehensive information.
I information sharing between the government and the private sector.
Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Mike Rogers -- -- -- on Capitol Hill we're gonna hear from him on that later this week but we're gonna hear.
Right now from captain Chuck Nash is with this out of a Washington DC to talk about that so it's good to have.
Kept Nash with us and it's interesting because we as -- basically two questions I mean we're -- talk about that this legislation.
What should be part of it what does the government need to put in the legislation into law that's not already.
There and then where's the line where's the line between protection of all of us -- citizens.
And privacy which were also concerned about -- let me take that first part of -- what do you think should be in the legislation if you just had take a step at that.
Well first off -- I think the legislation ought to detail what the government.
What the government responsibility is in and what the government did its job is to defend.
Is so -- -- what you have here Connell is a situation where private industry the banking industry the finance industry.
-- has been.
Doing this for decades they've been out in front of this statement spending the money they've been developing the systems and the protocols.
To protect themselves because there's money there yet on the government side its national security.
So we have the National Security Agency we have others who have been working that.
So the question is where's that balance and who's going to do what the government -- -- -- out its claim for what it's going to do but at the same time.
Share the tools and and some of the methodology because.
Industries been doing it for so long the government could learn a lot from industry and save money doing that ended the -- Airing there would obviously save money -- the the where before we talk about the line not the privacy line that I mentioned a moment ago where is that other line the one that you're referring to there.
Is it in the -- the cyber world similar to where it is in the in the real world where the government just.
I guess protects you as a national security interest and stays away completely from private industry although there are obviously regulations -- the ministry in the in the in the real world as well so where do you draw that line.
Yeah that's that's the gray area and that's that's what's going to have to it wasn't but three years ago -- where in town everybody was talking cyber warfare.
But everybody had different definitions they didn't even have the words they wanted to use.
That would that they could agree on this is relatively new.
For the government to step up.
You know before it used to be if you wanted to take down a country EU took massive armies or you -- things up.
That we went to nuclear weapons now you can do it remotely.
With computers get on line because we've become so interconnected.
And our systems are so complex that human beings can't run -- any more they run automatically and by getting into those automatic portions of the system.
You can do the damage of a nuclear weapon threat from across the world on a computer.
So with all that in mind then.
How much or how much of our privacy should we be willing to give up or should we be willing to give up -- As citizens any of our privacy is that just to be a fact of life or do we stand up fight against that.
I eight I for one truly believe that we ought to fight viciously to maintain our privacy.
But at the same time we have to realize that this is a different world if you look at what people.
Divulge on FaceBook and some of the other social networking sites the concept of privacy has been under challenge.
Four -- a decade now so that that whole thing the privacy I think really what it comes down to is the various amendments like the Fourth Amendment where.
-- you know unlawful search and seizure those kinds of things that's where.
And and these other groups ought to stop just defending the left and start looking at the overall context of things.
So that they protect all Americans and everybody's privacy but.
We all as citizens ought to be very very careful about what our government is doing all right -- conversation and captain.
-- Hank you very much for coming on always appreciate it.
