Gen. Paul Nakasone Assumes Leadership of Cybercom, NSA

Paul Nakasone

U.S. Army Gen. Paul Nakasone has succeeded U.S. Navy Adm. Mike Rogers as commander of the U.S. Cyber Command and director of the National Security Agency.

Nakasone, a 2018 Wash100 recipient, previously commanded the Army Cyber Command and led Cybercom’s Joint Task Force-ARES in efforts to counter cyber activities of the Islamic State militant group, NSA said Friday.

The change in leadership ceremony took place Friday at Fort Meade in Maryland and also marked the transition of Cybercom into the country’s 10th combatant command.

NSA added the event also coincided with the opening of the Integrated Cyber Center designed to support threat response planning and coordination efforts.

The center is located within NSA and Cybercom’s Fort Meade-based East Campus, which is scheduled to be completed in 2028 and will house more than 20,000 personnel.
