Enhancing cybersecurity is a mission objective for intelligence agencies 
during the next four years, according to an unclassified version of the 
2009 National Intelligence Strategy released today.

The NIS, from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, lays 
out what intelligence agencies hope to accomplish over the next four 
years through mission objectives, and how the agencies plan to do so 
with enterprise objectives.

Dennis Blair, the director of national intelligence, told reporters 
today that the country has to be aggressive in protecting its own 
secrets and stealing those of other nations. Throughout the world, he 
said, "information is moving to networks and that'where you have to go 
to learn what other countries and other groups are up to, and that's 
what you have to be able to protect in order to be able to do your own 

China and Russia in particular are very aggressive in the cyber world, 
Blair added.
