Glenn Gerstell, general counsel at the National Security Agency, has announced he is stepping down from his role to transition a nonprofit think tank, CyberScoop reported Friday. He gave legal advise to both Gen. Paul Nakasone and Adm. Michael Rogers over a five-year tenure as NSA's general counsel.
“It was truly an honor to be able to serve this agency and play a part in keeping our nation safe," the general counsel said in an email.
Gerstell will join the Center for Strategic and International Studies to serve as a cyber technology-focused senior adviser. CSIS works to address global challenges through practical research.
