+ - Director of National Intelligence says Snowden prompted a needed conversation->

Submitted by McGruber
McGruber (1417641) writes "At a Washington conference Thursday, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said that, while former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden's acts were egregious, those actions sparked much needed conversations that should have happened a long time ago. Clapper is also disturbed by the impact and public perception the leaks have had on NSA and the potential national security damage to come.

Agencies are focusing more on the insider threat today than they were pre-Snowden. Clapper also noted the intelligence community’s initiative to standardize IT across agencies — called ICITE — and improve security and information sharing. Had IT capabilities under ICITE been implemented, agencies might have detected Snowden, he said."
