U.S. cyber-security will not shield businesses unless a crisis forces change, according to the former National Intelligence director, suggesting the government must work quickly to aid the private sector.

“Until we have a banking collapse or electric power goes off in the middle of a snowstorm for eight weeks, or something of that magnitude, we’re likely just to talk about it and not do much,” said Mike McConnell, former director of National Intelligence.

McConnell suggested legislators advocate for further collaboration between the National Security Administration and U.S. companies.
