Title

Remarks by Secretary Gates at the Wall Street Journal CEO Council 2010 Meeting

Description

Mr. Gerald Seib interviewed Secretary of Defense, Robert M. Gates at the Wall Street Journal CEO Council 2010 meeting. The first part of the interview focuses on the world's security situation (e.g. conflicts in the Middle East). The second part moves toward management challenges at the Pentagon.

Gates is prompted to talk about cyber attacks toward the end of the interview. It is very brief, but Gates confirms that there is a threat. The Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense and National Security Agency are combining their efforts to make the nation more secure.

In terms of detailed content, this interview does not focus on cyber issues very much. Yet, it is important to hear that the Secretary of Defense agrees that cyber conflict is a huge threat and the government needs to act in order to enhance cybersecurity. The interview can be found in the Speech Collection. Or, journalists can find the interview from the Journalism Directory.
