Former CIA Director: Security Risks 'Very Dangerous' 
Former CIA director Leon Panetta spoke with Oracle Chief Architect Edward Screven at San Francisco’s annual RSA Security Conference about the growing number and increasing sophistication of attacks against government and private sector companies.

How does it work?
