Anne Neuberger, leader of the National Security Agency's new cybersecurity directorate, said her plans for the organization's first 60 days would rely on joint, collaborative approach, Fifth Domain reported Thursday.

Her diverse team will consist of professionals from across different areas such as emerging technologies, threat intelligence and nuclear command and control, she said Wednesday at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s summit.

Neuberger said she intends to organize her team as a unified community with diversity as a strength. The directorate will work with the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security to operationalize threat intelligence for network defense.

NSA's lessons learned over the past years will also inform the new directorate's security standards and efforts to educate industry, she noted.
