White House Rebuffed NSA Cyber Efforts - Report

The White House has refused several requests from the National Security Agency to do more to help protect private-sector computer networks, mostly because of privacy worries, the The Washington Post reported on Monday.

The Obama administration worried that the NSA's plans would amount to unprecedented monitoring of private communications, The Post reported. Most contentious was a proposal that would have required utilities and other critical infrastructure companies to submit to continuous scanning, The Post said.


The The Wall Street Journal also reported earlier on Monday that the NSA was seeking a bigger cyber role.
