Former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) raised concerns Sunday about U.S. cybersecurity, warning that the country is "not necessarily winning."
"We are in a cyber war in this country, and most Americans don't know it. And we are not necessarily winning," he said in an interview with John Catsimatidis that aired on AM 970 in New York.
"We have got huge challenges when it comes to cybersecurity … Hackers have been able to get into the uplinks and downlinks of our satellite systems, which means your GPS could go out and not come back on. They have been able to get into remote ... driverless cars and slam on the brakes when they are going 55 to 60 mph," the former lawmaker added.
"They want to be able to punish America in anyway that they can: shut a company down, shut a bank down, shut your lights off … so the challenge is huge," he said.
