3:05 am
africa has been a human tragedy. and the setback for development in the hardest hit countries and has high lighted a need for global individual lens and solidarity.u(ox i think the general assembly for the u.n. mission for ebola and emergency responses. the affected countries are beginning to see some problems thanks to their own modernization and global support.9;bgq we hope they will be decliered ebola-free this month.sk i have else specially declared workers from many african countries. and other parts of the world. but, kplen len sills, we are still short of people and

3:07 am
i thank the member states for their support, including key technical capacities. we must continue to provide humanitarianç,rñ assistance to affected people in our side of the country. we also face a longest of hot spots. and the eastern democratic republic of the congo. violence in yemen is growing.j( i'm concerned about fighting in
3:08 am
other parts of sudan.i the transitionn& ! strong support. in several countries constitutional amendments seem prolonged instead of strengthening democracy and thus risk provoking violent country. we must not resign ourselves to any further worsening of the con fliblgts between israelis and palestinians. i urge all the sides to ease the situation in gaza and the west bang. and move away from confrontation
3:09 am
and to waerds a negotiated settlement. the presence of thousands of foreign terrorists fighters in syria and in iraq has add eded a volatile dimension to those crises.ñ we have seen carnage in yemen as well as dispickble attack against the french regime charlie hebdo. extremism cannot ben] limited to military aex. important as it is.
3:10 am
there is also need to greater tension to organized crime. this year's crime -- this year's crime congress in return can help strengthen criminal justice systems for this war.: kplen sills my heart aches at the thought of the suffering of the girls and boys by the brutal extremist of groups. i would like to make a experience appearance to those involved. it is in your power to end these acts and to save lives. as a general and as a father and as a grandfather, i appear for
3:11 am
theeqf"t unity and unconditional lease of all abductees so that they can return to their families and resume their lives. i amgs appear to fully observe human rights. we have seen time and again that this is recross-suiting ajebt for terrorists.axñ >> translator: ladies and gentlemen, neither peace nor security are possible in a world which is flooded with easily-available weapons.
3:12 am
i con gratulate countries of the arm's treaty has enabled this landmark instrument to come into force so quickly. i urge other countries and especially the world's leading arm's traders to follow suit. the nuclear powers continue to squander vast sums to modernize their arsenals.pq97ñ instead of eliminating them.dé6#n the npt review conference will be an opportunity for us to
3:13 am
rededicate ourselves. @8= ? so many places, the governments are exhibiting a callous disregard for the geneva conventions. we saw the dlib rat and diabolical sol gent e vent. facilities have had a devil stating impact.
3:14 am
this marks teny years since you have endorszed member states to protect. a full range of issues and concerns. yet, in too many crises the community does not act ont warning with responses.÷ my next all right is one more weekend to operationalize the responsibility to protect and 8xc; reclaim the people-centered course and make the endorsement of the principle possible in the first place. i laumpbled a human rights up front initiative which aims to ensure the united nations act earlier, more effectively and as one to prevent atroszties.
3:15 am
as a secretary and wider u.n. system embraced this approach, i urge member states to support this initiative and take similar steps including by making better use of u.n. bod e bodies. i tried my deep concern in several countries. let us take inspiration from last month called by the general assembly for a global moratorium on executions and move decisively toward the death penalty.[:tht let me also make aú8 appearance i'm tro5 ej" by the
3:16 am
rise of political parties that target vulnerable groups for the nation and abuse.xxprñ i'm horrified byrun the unscrupulous actions ofj smugglers for subject or silence with refugees to abuse and even abandoning them to die at sea. let us strengtsen our shared response to this growing challenge. i ensure that everyone enjoys the right to a nationality. for people of african decent. over the years, the war has failed to fully recognize the legacy of colonialism and the
3:17 am
slave trade and discrimination. still faced by people of african decent.e,v an important part of this observance will be the unvailing and to the transalantic slave trade. i hope you've sparked efforts to end the form 06 slavery and expectedation that affect millions of people today™2f from development to rights, united nations must ever warn pitfall moreovers. a u.n. development system including the agencies and programs at regional commissionings is a fully supporting effort. to shape and implement a new agenda.
3:18 am
i'll also be appointing level to grow the gap between humanitarian needs and sources. this effort will also help with preparations for next yore's humanitarian summit in istanbul. we continue to engage in efforts to modernize secretary yat including the launch next year of the new mobility. i thank member states< zp supporting the completion of the master plan and our efforts to move towards the u.n. buildings around the world. kplen lent4 ç sills, ladies and gentlemen, at the same time as a second general, i must express
3:19 am
my deep concern that the general assembly was unable to agree on many important manageable issues in d#d8hber. i trusted that u.n. resort and give you your working methods when your discussions resume in march.tunñ we need your support to meet the enormous challenges before us. i would like to stress the importance of my proposal which was made three years ago in iéó @r(t&háhp &hc% 2012, so it was three years ago. for a new approach to parter in ships. u this is a curable enabler. for the progress that you, yourselves, have said you want.tvy parter in ships with a private sector and others have accelerated exponent shlly.q1#r many are making to walk with us.f÷
3:20 am
but dead kated partnership facility would allow us to see this great potential while providing the necessaryikç coherence, oversielgts andg.x accountability. my senioruczu advisors and i understand your concerns and have answered all of your questions. i, again urge youdk)" to give the hand in march so that we are ready with the sustainableóoñ÷÷ urge you to temper.&@ñ finally the united nations serving the worlds of people is one that is always scanning the horizon for emerging challenges. cyber security is one such issue. cyber crime is a threat we ignore at our]whs peril, future
3:21 am
catastrophe key
3:22 am
will be enrichd with a new vision for development, new ideas for the main tentqgu enters of peace and security, human rights and stronger united nations to help bring it all to life. this is what we must do. this is our moral and,&ñ political responsibility. if÷áfj we must, we 0;xcan. if we can, we must. we commemorate the charter from san francisco to thea3hxx present day. we have a huge responsibility before us but also a year of opportunity. your support and guidance aren,ñ inexpensible. global responsibility is indwisible.
3:23 am
excellencies let us work together to make this year çh 2015 a time for global action. i count on your leadership.nrvqv thank you very much. merci. [ applause ] >> again great pleasure again at the start of this new year for this first. as you may have already heard i)#piñ had a brief assembly of the year or so ahead. let me just reiterate three points. first, 2015 is a year of
3:24 am
historic popularity and last one that can take steps to avoid the worst impact on climate change. with agenda, sustainable development goals and climate change agreement, we can set the world on course for a better future. this must be a time for global action. future generations judge us harshly if we fail tod obligation. second, with more people displaced and in need than at any time in decades.]q theqtmo÷ lessons for the future. whether it is a disease or a country or human rights abuses,
3:25 am
the international community needs]f?; to act all year, focus on prevention and get at the root causes before events gety23#g out of control. that leads me to my third point. i want to make a special appeal for tolerance and÷ in far too many places we have seen acts of terrorism, %ff÷ extremism, unspeakable brutality and deeply worrying escalation of tensions betweenu-v communities and within societies. addressing this court in a manner th!- multiplies, the greatest test our human family faces in the 21st3ehç century.
3:26 am
all of us were deeply moved from the many images of yesterday's despicable attack in paris. perhaps none wasl as horrifying of that french policeman ruthlessly executed on a sidewalk. we now know that 6wçpoliceman's name. ahmed maribet. he, himself, was a muslim. this is yet another reminder of what we are facing together. it should never be seen as a war of religion for religion or unreligion. it is an assault on our commonx humanity designed to terrify and snoo incite. giving in to hatredh í and division
3:27 am
only guarantees precisely what terrorists seek. wegcn y must not fall into that trap. we need to find a way to live together ino)úpeace, in harmony in full respect of universal human rights and fundamental freedoms. freedoms. >> ladies and gentlemen, we face another grave test as ni gechlt ria readies.k]cñ bakra haram has continued its violence kidnapping even more women and children and destroying churches and mosques. mayhem has spread across the region and isj directabudr impact on other countries. i urge boka haram's leaders to
3:28 am
end the discussion of so many lives and communities and immediately and unconditional lyly release the school girls anddzx boys and all others. we cannot let the human rightsñí abuses continue. as a father and grandfather i'll continue toi5+u actively explore what member state what more could be done. thank you for your attention.!ds÷ >> you?k talked about the event in paris. at the general;1 assembly against the formation of religion. do you think that such a legislation helps or hurts the
3:29 am
atmosphere that,!>ao÷ youo3fjb know -- that that magazine was defaming religions? >> defamation of any religion or belief is not acceptable. taking any measures against the freedom of expression, that is another matter. therefore, i would welcome the the -- what kind of measures they should take to promote thew#ubsi more toll rains. that we have beenìi making -- unfortunately, we have not been
3:30 am
able to promote 0b(!ñmuch-needed tolerance and mutual diealogue. but at the sames) d time. going to promote and protect freedom of expression. >> thanks a lot. >> you just mentioned impugnnityimpunity. in order to get access again in darfur where there were 200 rapes and -- and in your speech you said you were dissatisfied with the general assembly not acting on management issues. i wanted to know if that means lgbt or same-sex benefits for u.n. staff. what would you have the assembly do? >> as question, as you know. this report might not have been
3:31 am
sufficient because of lack of full cooperation of the authorities on theçlzc ground. that has really hampered the authorities to go into the fields and get thorough investigation. it is important that we have to have a q thorough investigation and, as a matter of principal there should be no -- there ltdk =u1 be clear accountability, process and justice. and i am about this matter and we will in the course of time, then have a better understand --ju1 information on this matter. and on this(oh lgbt52mz i have made my position clear. this is an issue of dignity and
3:32 am
there should be no discrimination whatsoever for any staff, any people on the base of religion or w.belief. this is a"i# fundamental principle of human rights and that is why on the basis of that, i have úe taken some administrative measures to allow the same and equal treatment for the staff for who are having that sexual orientations and this is i think,f2a >> some countries, they are0< calling to punish the mq%9%9"uz join the icc. do you think these calls wil help the palestinian and israeli cause? and q8s0u"ájjz that the security co scñ it's about time for him to stepl strong step regarding the palestinian estate?
3:33 am
>> the palestinian -- state of palestinians was accorded to aspire the general assembly. and in accordance with their status they have taken their own decision to exit international agreement and conventions and treat ease. that is, if they're right and to understand that they have taken( actions.&=r4÷h1ñpñ and many treatments.( this process and peace process is a separate one.
3:34 am
peace process is much more important one and it is simple,w3dtx that the parties concernedv@i create the favorable and most feared, whether it is political social whatever it may be conducive to the smooth progress?>34ñ of peace talks. that, i've been urging bothfis sides, palestinians and> israeli authoritiesny$>÷ to fully cooperate and sit down together and issues. root causes of the issues. otherwise if they continue this way, there is no guarantee that we will notá&l havedn any other tragic confrontation as we have been experiencing to general and six years.p- again, i'm urging two parties to
3:35 am
address all the pending issue 8"0 for dialogue. and united nations and secretary general, i will spare no efforts. >> thank you very much. >> we have to go. >> thank you. >> there was a rally held in france this weekend aswçf.x a show of unity in response to the attack. an estimated 3.7 million people took part,]@f including more than 40 world leaders. however, a senior u.s. official was not present at the event. white house press secretary josh earnest took questions about that at monday's briefingw1"x with reporters. reporters. >> on the topic du jour, why didn't vice president biden president obama or attorney
3:36 am
general eric holder attend the rally? >> i think people across the country and even across the globe wask!> a remarkable display of unity by the french people in the face of these terrible terror attacks.e8p%ñ@!ca some have asked whether or not the united states should have sent someone with a higher profile than the ambassador to france. and i think it's fair to say that we should have sent someone with a hooi higher profile to be there. that said, there is no doubt that the american people and this administration stand four square behind ou"u allies in france as they face down this threat. and that was evident throughout
3:37 am
last week when you saw thatdtr the top counterism adviser was in touch with her frenchq çm counterterrorism counterpart minutes after this attack emerged. you saw president obama phone president hollande to%3bpo extend his condolences and offer and pledge any assistance to bring to justice those responsible. that kind of coordination is the backbone between the strong relationship between united states and france continues. it continued throughout the weekend and continues zp) (v in fact, i can tell you that the french ambassador to the united states will be here at the white house ,m$ñ today to meet with lisa monaco who, as i mentioned earlier, is the president's top counterterrorism adviser. >> how muchñ]e÷ñ higher profile do you think should have -- does the president think should have been there? eric holder was in the city and
3:38 am
on talk shows that morning. should he have been the person representing the u.s.? at what level would the president have been satisfied with a presence? >> jim had the circumstances been a little bit different i think the president himself would have liked to have the opportunity to be there.!=vy well2vxas the fact is that this is obviously a march that the planning for which only began friday night and 36 hours later, itóyt hadt kb begun. what's also clear is that the presidential level visit or even a vice presidential level visit are owneress and significant. in a situation like this they have a pretty significant impact on the other citizens trying to participate in a event like this. we talk about this a lot when it comes to the president attending a basketball game. but the fact of the matter is, you know there were not just thousands of people at the
3:39 am
event, but millions. it wasn't just an arena that needed to be secured but a large outdoor area that poses significant security challenges. i'm confident that the professionals at the secret service could overcome those challenges but it would have been very difficult to do so without significantly having impacted the ability of common citizens to participate in this march. and, after all what i think was so impressive about this display is it demonstrated the unity of the french people. and that is something that we are always mindful of in situations like this. of interfering with those trying to attend an event particularly when the purpose of the event is to demonstrate avi#ñ unity of the purpose of coming$ >> can you see all the white house briefing with press secretary josh earnest online'r at c-span.org.eigyk-&ismu#)p
3:40 am
c-span.org. >> they need to get back to regular order. then everybody can see who voted on what, who put what amendment up and then send it to the president and let him pass it or veto it. >> i hope it's%47 a more mature responsible congress that we will see emerging in the next)ok two years.w get on the task that they're
3:41 am
constitutional trying to do, govern legislate. what the american people said in november of both parties is it's time to see that finally start to happen. i think -- i don't know. 114th congress, what can we expect of them? citizens united. all the politicians are bought and sold really.ja÷l05z >> we need you to understand you work we've seenb(ñ nothing but people in the street. frankly we're tired of the silly games being played. and we don't believe anything we're hearing any longer, to include create jobs.+p5

female governoror. she called for rebuilding the state economy and revealing manufacturing. this is 15 minutes. >> congratulations. >> thank you. thank you, thank you, thank you. [ applause ] >> please be seated. my fellow road islanders it is a state honor to address you today. i'm humbled by the challenges before us mainedful of the many people struggling some of the toughest economic conditions we've ever faced and deeply grateful for the trust that you've put in me. let me began by expressing our shared heart felt appreciation for 25 years offing dedicated public
4:33 am
service. thank you governor chafy. let us also acknowledge the brave men and women serving in uniform. our troops first responders and ochs officers and my family for supporting me along every single step every way. i love you. the challenges that my governor inherits define the possibilities before them and how we solve intractable problems is limited only by our creativity and our courage to tackle the most difficult challenges. over the past 30 years we've watched the foundation of our economy, our manufacturing base erode. our manufacturing sector used to provide good stable middle class jobs and as it has withered, nothing has taken its place. in just the last year, we've had the highest unemployment rate in the country for nine straight months. we've ben 49th among states where companies want to do
4:34 am
business and dead last for helping entrepreneurs. at the same time our government has become larger but less affective. we face unsustainable budget deficits and yet our roads bridges and school buildings are crumbling. as a result workers are insecure families are vulnerable and too many cities are teetering on the brink of bank kuptruptcy and far too many people are leaving our state to seek employment elsewhere. there are far too many believes that our problems are just too big to solve that there's nothing we can do and that our leaders don't get it and that our system caters to the few. we've said that this is rode island, this is just the way that things are so we've deferred our expectations and
4:35 am
let corruption take root. today we begin to change that attitude. [ applause ] it's time to stop our decline and to ignite a rode island come back. it's not something that's going to happen on its own or we can wait for somebody else to do. every person within the sound of my voice and far beyond has a role to play in this come back. most important, we have to believe. we have to believe it's possible to have the come back that our families deserve and we have to commit ourselves to a new way of doing things. now, at times, these changes are going to be uncomfortable. so often we've resisted new ideas because people say we've never done it that way before. but doing it the way we've always done it has landed us here. we need new politics and new ideas. too many interest groups have crowded into this building for too long putting their short
4:36 am
term self interests before the long term interests of all rode islanders. today, i have rode island to begin to think differently. i want you to ask yourself each of you, what role can i play in the comeback of road island? how can we as elected leaders represent the concerns of all the diverse people of rode island? how can business leaders develop new strategies to meet pay roll and&t ç expand jobs right here in rode island. how can our educators create cutting edge laboratories of learning where we teach the next generation of innovateors and leaders. now we're going to have to give up a little of our own narrow self interests and give something back to our community but that's how america works and that's how we're going to get rode island back to work. we need -- we need that eternal
4:37 am
optimism shown by our founders who believed in divine intervention, good fortune, and yes, providence, the idea that through god's grace, all things are possible because they are. the truth is our only path out of this mess is to create middle class, family supporting jobs. so we have to foster an environment where businesses want to add jobs and also where we support our workers. if we do that, if we rebuild this economy everything is possible. if we don't nothing else is going to matter. let's create a place where people know you can make it in rode island, whether it's the young man preparing to graduate from high school or a new mom who sees nothing but promise for her children or the little girl who knows she can be anything she wants to be if she works hard enough. i want rode island to be a place
4:38 am
of boundless opportunity for everyone. and heck maybe that little girl will even become governor of rode island. middle class jobs are how we keep young people in rode island. it's how we move people off public assistance and secure the resources to invest in education and infrastructure and save for a rainy day but more importantly a steady job is the life blood of a healthy family. i learned that growing up watching my father for three decades work at the watch factory. as a kid i saw that there was a job for every kid in this carpool but i also saw him struckling again when the company moved jobs overseas. too many rode islanders today face that uncertainty. every decision we make should pass the test of whether it
4:39 am
should create opportunities for middle class families and how will this create middle class jobs and then have the courage to act accordingly. to spark rode island's come back we have to do three things. first we need to build the skills our students and workers need to compete in the 21st second we have to attract entrepreneurs and investment in industries of our strength to flv stimulate our economy and create jobs. third, we have to innovate in everything we do including in our state government to enhance accountability and deliver value to tax payers. we all know the economy is changing rapidly. the question is, are we preparing rode islanders to be winners in this new environment? education is a ladder of opportunity, to we need to modernize our school buildings
4:40 am
support our teachers and make college accessible for more families. we need to ensure affective training opportunities for workers of all ages that align with the jobs that are in demand. to create stable jobs, we also have to cultivate conditions that will make businesses want to be here and want to add jobs here. before adding jobs businesses want to know there will be a steady supply of well trained workers and a 21st century insfrainfra infrastructure, clear and stream lined regulations and most importantly that everyone can get ahead based on what you know not who you know. we need a growth strategy focused on our strengthslb9tñ in the marine sighciences, food industries and we have to revive our
4:41 am
manufacturing facture because if we make things in rode island e people can make it in rode island. we also have to innovate in everything we do including how government works in rode island. let's operate a government that's customer friendly and creatively finds ways to help families succeed. it's time to modernize government and instill accountability for results. let's improve medicaid and provide more digital services to citizens and facilitate online permitting for businesses and let's help our cities and towns share services to reduce operating costs. instead of simply throwing money at problems, we have to be outcome oriented and insist on citizens getting their moneys worth for their tax dollars. we have to do all of this with urgency because our budget deficit is severe this year and
4:42 am
there's even darker clouds on the horizon. we can't do what we've been doing scraping together enough cuts and revenues to make it through next year. we have commit ourselves to limit our deficit over the next several years and make the tough choices so at the same time we'll be able to invest in job creating opportunities. my fellow rode islanders, today we face a choice. we can continue on our current path, we can avoid difficult decisions because we're afraid of special interests or political ramifications or of simply changing the way we've always done it. if we stay on that course, our kids are going to be left behind. more cities and towns will go bankrupt and other states will continue to pass us by. but there's another choice there's a better path. i want everyone to have opportunity to make it in rode
4:43 am
island so today i ask you to join me and let's reach for something better for rode island. [ applause ] now listen, the job is not going to be done in two, five or ten years and the problems we face weren't created over night and we're not going to solve them overnight. and at each step of our journey this journey that we're on together, we're going to mesasure our work in lives changed, in opportunities created, and in families saved. this is my pledge to you, i will wake up every single morning focused on expanding opportunity for families in rode island and no matter how long it takes, or how many obstacles are thrown in our way, we're never going to give up. now, i don't have all the answers. just ask my kids they'll tell you that. but i will go anywhere and i
4:44 am
will work with anyone who wants to do what's right for rode island. and i'm especially committed to collaborating with the speaker who i thank on their dedicated service and share in getting rode islanders back to work. listen, the challenges before us are real. i get that. i know that. but hear this rode island. together, we will meet those challenges. as i prepared for today i spoke to a friend of mine who is someone many of you know and many of you are praying for. sister ann keef. sister ann's work has been teaching nonviolence but like voeft most things in life it's a work in progress. at a time when all you have to do is hear the word ferguson, you realize the challenge of our time is to simply get along a little better and respect one
4:45 am
another. to be a better example for our children and to teach them that solving a problem doesn't mean catering to the loudest voice, it often means listening to the softest voices. i would ask if you remember one thing from today it's that we're all in this together. governor cuomo who sadly passed away last week reminded us that we must be the family of america recognizing that at the heart of the matter we're bound to one another. our collective future is tied to rebuilding rode island's economy in a way that expands opportunity for all families without leaving anyone behind. i believe that's why we're all here today. we're tying our faiths together and with god's grace and with god's guidance, we will find a way. thank you, god bless you, and god bless road island.

4:47 am
that would create additional protections. this is 20 minutes. [ applause ] thank you. thank you so much. thank you. everybody have a seat. thank you. well, thank you edith for your introduction. as mentioned, we go a long way back. in-law school we served on the law review together. i will not say who edited who. i will say she looked exactly the same. and i do not. and it's -- it's upsetting. but edith in your career you've stood up for citizens in communities. i was proud to nominate you first as a commissioner and then as chair woman of the ftc,
4:48 am
you're doing an outstanding job as are your fellow commissioners. we very much appreciate your outstanding efforts. you know, in edith's story from the daughter of mexican immigrants to the head of the ftc, we see a central part of the american story. that's worth remembering at a time when those are issues that we're debating all the time. it's a reminder that what makes this can'tountry special is the incredible talent that we draw from all over the world and somehow it all merges into something unique, america. to edith to the fellow commissioners, to all of you who work at the ftc thanks for welcoming me. i'm told i may be the first president to come to the ftc in nearly 80 years. since fdr in 19 --
4:49 am
[ applause ] first time apparently since fdr in 1937. which is a little surprising. i mean you'd think like one of the presidents would like come here by accident. they ended up in the wrong building. where are we? we're at the ftc. anyway, i figured it was time to correct that. plus i know sometimes your name confuses folks. they don't always understand what your mission is. one person who does understand is david letterman. a few months ago, he thanked you for standing up to the companies that were trying to pitch a new weight loss product, caffeine laced under garments. i'm actually not making this up.
4:50 am
you ruled that these projects were not substantiated by scientific evidence so thank you for saving america from caffeine laced under garments. these companies owed consumers a refund. and that was just the latest example because as edith said you recently celebrated your 100th anniversary and i want to thank you for 100 proud years of protecting american consumers. i also wantvw> to thank some of the members of congress that are here today and many of our partners from not just government but from private consumer and advocacy groups. next week up the street i will deliver the state of the union address. it will be a chance to talk about america's resurgence, including something we can all be proud of which is the longest stretch of private sector job growth. fifty-eight straight months and
4:51 am
more than 11 million new jobs. [ applause ] in the speech i am going to focus on how we can build on that progress and help more americans feel that resurgence in their own lives through higher wages and rising incomes and a growing middle class. but since i've only got two years left in this job, i tend to be impatient and i didn't want to wait for the state of the union to share my plans so i've been traveling around the country rolling out some of the ideas that we are going to be talking about. a little sneak preview. and in the 21st century in this dizzy age of technology and innovation, so many of the jobs that we create and opportunity of jobs that are available depend on our digital economy. it depends on how to search and
4:52 am
connect and shop and discover online in cyber space. as we've all been reminded over the past year, including the hack of sony, this scoredextraordinary intersection creates enormous opportunities and also enormous vulnerabilities for our nation and for our economy and for families. i am laying out new proposals on how we can create new opportunities in the digital anyone while protecting all the values that we all cherish. >> today i am focusing on how we can protect american consumers from identity threat and ensure american privacy including for our children at school. tomorrow at the department of home land security i will focus on how we-qp-r can work with the private sector on how we can better defend ourselves against cyber attacks and on wednesday i
4:53 am
will talk about how we can give families faster and cheaper access to broadband so they can succeed in the digital economy. but i wanted to start here at the ftc because everyday you take the lead in making sure that americans their hard earned money and their privacy ar3óp protected especially when they go online. in these days, that's pretty much for everything. managing our bank accounts paying our bills hand ming everything from medical records to movie tickets. controlling our homes. smart houses from smart zones. secret service does not let me do that but i know other people do. with these benefits come risks. major companies get hacked. american's personal information including financial information gets stolen. the problem is growing and it costs us billions of dollars. in one survey, 9 out of 10
4:54 am
americans say like they feel like they have lost control of their personal information. in recent breaches more than 100 million americans have had their personal data compromised like credit card information. when these cyber criminals start racking up charges on your card, it can destroy your credit rating, it can turn your life upside down. it may take you months to get your finances back in order. this is a direct threat to the economic security of american families and we've got to stop it. if we're going to be connected, then we need to be protected. as americans, we shouldn't have to base -- forfeit our basic privacy when we go online to do our business. that's why since i took office, we've been working with the private sector to strengthen our cyber defenses. a few months ago we launched our by secure initiative. we are moving to stronger pin
4:55 am
and chip technology%4@n for credit cards. the ftc is working with credit bureaus so victims can restore their stolen identities faster and everyday helping consumers with identitythreat.gov. today i'm announcing new steps to protect the identities of the american people. first we're introducing legislation to create a single strong national standard so americans know when their information has been stolen or misuse misused. right now almost every state has a different law on this and it is confusing for consumers and it is confusing for companies and it is costly too to have to comply to this patch work of loss. sometimes folks don't even find out their credit card information has been stolen until they say charges on their bill and it is too late so under the new standard that we're proposing, companies would have
4:56 am
