Bill Lynn, CEO, Finmeccanica North America

The first change of command at U.S. Cyber Command is complete. General Keith Alexander made way for Admiral Mike Rogers recently. But new revelations from Edward Snowden are a reminder that the first four years of the combination of CYBERCOM and the National Security Agency aren't without controversy. William Lynn was Deputy Secretary of Defense when the Defense Department stood up Cyber Command. He wrote about the strategy behind it in Foreign Policy at the time. He is now Chief Executive Officer of Finmeccanica North America and DRS Technologies. He explained on In Depth with Francis Rose the chain of events that caused DoD leadership to stand up Cyber Command.

Sharon Franklin Bradford, Executive Director, Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board

The National Security Agency's collection of Internet data may be massive, but it's constitutional. An independent agency, the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, has released a thorough report on how federal agencies track foreigners' communications under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. The law has come under fire since Edward Snowden leaked documents on NSA programs a year ago. Sharon Bradford Franklin, executive director of the PCLOB, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to talk about the board's investigation.

But officials said they hope a recent overhaul in the procedures will breathe new life into the program.

Insider threat programs must find the right 'trust but verify' balance

NSA, State and nearly every other agency are developing "fixes" to protect unauthorized employees from taking data. Experts say employees need to understand why the rules are in place and how they benefit both the organization and worker. OMB says one way to improve the situation is by reducing the number of federal employees with security clearances-an initiative that already is underway.
