Gen. Paul Nakasone Commands U.S. Cyber Command and National Security Agency
Army Gen. Paul Nakasone took command of U.S. Cyber Command Friday at a ceremony that elevated the organization to the U.S. military’s tenth unified combatant command.
Nakasone assumed command of Cyber Command and the National Security Agency from Navy Adm. Michael Rogers during a change-of-command ceremony at Fort Meade, Maryland.
Army Lt. Gen. Paul Nakasone was confirmed by the Senate on Tuesday to be the next director of the National Security Agency and the leader of U.S. Cyber Command, putting him in charge of the nation’s largest spy agency and the military’s cyber warfare organization. He will receive a fourth star as he takes control of both organizations.
Nakasone visited Hawaii last October for official duties but also spoke promoting the cybersecurity career field at a community event attended by middle school, high school and college students engaged in cybersecurity, as well as their parents, teachers and other cybersecurity enthusiasts.
Congratulations to General Paul Nakasone.
