General Alexander - former Director of the National Security Agency
Monday, November 19, 2018
General Alexander is a four-star general with an impressive 40-year military career, culminating in the role of the Director of the National Security Agency (NSA) and Chief of the Central Security Service (CSS) from 2005-2014. He holds the distinction of serving in this role longer than any other director. While serving as the NSA Director, he was appointed by Congress to be the first Commander to lead the U.S. Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM). He held this role from 2010-2014, establishing and defining how our nation is protected against cyber attacks.
As Commander, USCYBERCOM, General Alexander was responsible for planning, coordinating and conducting operations, and defending Department of Defense (DoD) computer networks—as well as the defense of the nation - from cyber threats. As the Director of NSA, he was responsible for national foreign intelligence requirements, military combat support, and the protection of U.S. national security information systems.
Serving as a member of the President's Council on Enhancing National Cybersecurity, General Alexander developed key recommendations to create a defensible national cyber architecture to protect national security by promoting rapid innovation and close public-private collaboration while preserving privacy and civil liberties.
General Alexander attended the West Point, and in his class were three other future four-star generals, David Petraeus, Martin Dempsey, and Walter Sharp.
This will be a very timely and fascinating event with the foremost cyber leader since U.S. government institutions, corporations’ intellectual property, and tens of millions of peoples’ personal information are hacked daily by foreign countries and entities.
