You know by now that cyber attacks are a growing threat to US government data facilities, critical infrastructure and American businesses. Thursday at RSA Conference 2012, FBI Director Robert Mueller will explain how the threat has been a game changer for his agency.

While Mueller‘s presentation isn’t public at this point, an FBI spokesperson told CSO that his remarks would track closely with similar remarks made recently by FBI Executive Assistant Director Shawn Henry.

Henry has said in a number of presentations and interviews that you can’t just use technology to defeat cyber threats, you have to know who is attacking you and what they’re after. Henry has also suggested that the US create a new, separate, highly secure Internet for critical infrastructure, financial institutions and the government.
