    SAN FRANCISCO -- The NSA is too big and slow to effectively fight ingenious cyber attacks without the help of Silicon Valley tech expertise, so it’s time to patch up relations between the two, the head of the NSA told a gathering of tens of thousands at RSA Conference 2016.

    Attacks like the one that took down the Ukraine power grid last year can happen here – it’s just a matter of time, says Adm. Mike Rogers, director of the NSA.

    Before that happens, NSA and private security experts need to come together, plan responses and practice them.

    Rogers calls for the NSA and Silicon Valley to change what they’re saying to each other in order to come up with answers that best serve the country and figure out “what to do when we get penetrated,” which is just a matter of time. “We spend a lot of time right now talking about what we can’t do.”
