NSA to Replace System Administrators with Computers

Gen. Keith Alexander, director of the National Security Agency , recently announced his plans to replace human system administrators at NSA headquarters with computers.

This is part of the NSA’s plan to reduce and prevent future intelligence leaks in the wake of the Edward Snowden revelations on the United States surveillance program. Their plans involve  cutting back on the number of human employees working as system administrators. The NSA currently employs approximately 1,000 system administrators.

At a hacking conference, Black Hat, in Las Vegas, Alexander gave a talk trying to garner support from the hacking community and was heckled throughout the hour-long talk.  NSA recruiters also made a visit to the University of Wisconsin only to meet another negative reaction from the young crowd.
