National Security Agency Director Adm. Michael Rogers has engaged with companies in efforts to identify how they can help disrupt terrorist groups’ exploitation of social media, according to an Atlantic Council blog article published Thursday.

Ashish Kumar Sen reports Rogers, who also heads the U.S. Cyber Command, told audience at the Atlantic Council’s Commanders Series forum Thursday he believes the ISIS organization will increasingly use technology to recruit youth and propagate extremism.

“That is a troublesome development for us and we have got to figure out how we are going to deal with it,” Rogers was quoted as saying.

He noted at the event that the Obama administration aims to stop ISIS’ online recruitment activity without violating individual freedom of expression and rights.

The U.S. also intends to collaborate with its foreign allies to address global cybersecurity challenges, while the Defense Department works to establish a “cyber hygiene” culture as well as promote user responsibility in cyberspace, Rogers told forum audience.
