Anne Neuberger, former first chief risk officer at NSA, will lead the agency’s Cybersecurity Directorate and report directly to NSA Director and a 2019 Wash100 winner Gen. Paul Nakasone, the agency said Tuesday.

Neuberger previously served as deputy director of operations and head of NSA’s Russia small group.

NSA said the new directorate will strengthen its white hat mission, operationalize its vulnerability assessments and threat intelligence capabilities, facilitate information sharing with clients and collaborate with the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Cyber Command to fight cyber adversaries.
