DIA Director Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn fielded questions on cybersecurity and unauthorized disclosures during testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in today’s annual Worldwide Threat Assessment.

Flynn joined Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, CIA Director John Brennan, FBI Director James Comey and Director of the National Counterterorrism Center Matthew Olsen.

In their opening statements, SSCI Chairman Dianne Feinstein and Vice Chairman Saxby Chambliss both expressed their appreciation for the men and women serving in the IC for their dedication and service, a sentiment shared by every senator who spoke. The panel fielded questions about Syria, terrorist threats (including any aimed at the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi), cybersecurity and resource constraints on the IC.

This is the first of three scheduled hearings where Flynn will testify in open session on emerging threats. He is scheduled to appear before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Feb. 4 and before the Senate Armed Services Committee Feb. 11.





DIA is the nation’s premier all-source military intelligence organization.

It provides the nation’s most authoritative assessments of foreign military intentions and capabilities. The agency’s four core competencies -- human intelligence, all-source analysis, counterintelligence and technical intelligence -- enable military operations while also informing policy-makers at the defense and national levels.

DIA’s mission is unique and no other agency matches its military expertise across such a broad range of intelligence disciplines.
