The National Security Agency announced today plans to establish a new defense-minded cyber-security division that will focus on defending the US against foreign cyber-threats.
This new division, which will be named the Cybersecurity Directorate, will become operational on October 1, later this year.
Anne Neuberger will be the division’s first Director of Cybersecurity. She will report directly to General Paul Nakasone, the NSA’s Director.
Neuberger previous positions included NSA Chief Risk Officer; Deputy Director of Operations; and Lead of NSA’s Russia Small Group.
