The National Security Agency (NSA) will establish a Cybersecurity Directorate that redefines its cybersecurity mission, according to the NSA website.
NSA’s Cybersecurity Directorate is a major organization that unifies NSA’s foreign intelligence and cyber defense missions and is charged with preventing and eradicating threats to National Security Systems and the Defense Industrial Base. Ms. Anne Neuberger, the Director of Cybersecurity, will be leading the Cybersecurity Directorate and reporting directly to General Nakasone. Her previous positions include but are not limited to NSA’s first Chief Risk Officer, Deputy Director of Operations, and Lead of NSA’s Russia Small Group.
General Paul M. Nakasone, Commander, U.S. Cyber Command and Director, National Security Agency/Chief, says, “What I’m trying to get to in a space like cyberspace is speed, agility, and unity of effort.”
