Gen. Paul Nakasone

Director, National Security Agency, and Commander, U.S. Cyber Command

Gen. Nakasone took the dual roles atop NSA and Cyber Command in May 2018 after having served in the cryptologic community for a long time. Previously he commanded U.S. Army Cyber Command and had held assignments in South Korea, Iraq and Afghanistan. “NSA and USCYBERCOM’s greatest strength has always been our people,” Nakasone said when he assumed his latest roles. “Your agility and ability to solve the unsolvable challenges are more critical than ever, and perhaps our mission has never been more demanding. But we are up to this task, and I look forward to leading you in this new chapter of our history.”
