Remarks as delivered by DNI James R. Clapper on “National Intelligence, North Korea, and the National Cyber Discussion” at the International Conference on Cyber Security

It’s great to be here after fighting the snow traffic in Washington to get to the airport, and then flying here.  I want to thank Father McShane [Fordham University President Joseph M. McShane], for that kind introduction. You have some truly remarkable speakers and panels this week, and I’m humbled that you invited me to speak. Thanks for having me.

Thank you, Tony [Tyler, IATA Director General and CEO] for that kind introduction.

Actually, I was into INSA before it was INSA. In the late ‘90s, I was president of SASA for a year or two, and I tried to promote – a word you’ll hear again from me – integration with AFCEA. For a lot of reasons, that was an idea whose time just hadn’t come yet. Now, it has.

The Honorable Matthew G. Olsen, Director NCTC, Remarks at the Brookings Institution

Last week and again this morning, the President spoke directly these concerns, calling ISIL an “immediate threat to the people of Iraq and people throughout the region.” Likewise, the British Prime Minister announced that the UK was raising their threat level, citing information that ISIL is targeting Europe. So, this morning, I would like to spend a few minutes talking about the nature of the terrorism threat we see in Syria and Iraq.
