IronNet Cybersecurity founder, President and CEO Keith Alexander has said he believes industry can avoid breaches if companies share more information with the U.S. government, Motherboard reported Tuesday.

Alexander, a retired U.S. Army general and former National Security Agency director, told audience at a cybersecurity forum in Manhattan he also believes private companies that are victims of a hacker attack should not retaliate on their own.

“If it starts a war, you can’t have companies starting a war,” said Alexander, an inductee into Executive Mosaic“˜s Wash100 for 2017.

He added the government has an “inherent responsibility” to help defend companies against hackers and that authorities should be given more power to stop nation-state actors.
