National Security Agency Director Adm. Michael Rogers has told the House Intelligence Committee that countries like China have cyber capabilities that could potentially disrupt U.S. infrastructure systems, Reuters reported Thursday.

Patricia Zengerle writes that Rogers pointed in his testimony to cyber attacks that focus on invading and conducting reconnaissance on computer networks.

“What concerns us is that access, that capability can be used by nation-states, groups or individuals to take down [networks],” Rogers told the committee during a hearing on the collection of phone records.

He also noted that phone companies continue to provide records to NSA under stricter surveillance rules.
