The top G-man is warning Congress that hackers will pose a greater danger to US national security than terrorists in the not-too-distant future.
FBI Director Robert Mueller warned Congress that “down the road, the cyber threat will be the number one threat to the country.”
Mueller and James Clapper, director of national intelligence, were making the rounds on Capitol Hill this week, testifying before both the House and Senate intelligence committees.
In prepared remarks
before the House committee, Clapper warned that the US has seen a “dramatic increase in malicious cyber activity targeting US computers and networks”.
