NSA plans to build Cybersecurity Directorate to better collaborate with the Homeland Security and the FBI

US Home Security Agency (NSA) is planning to form a network security council, Cybersecurity Directorate to help it work better with departments such as the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It is reported that the NSA hopes to revitalize its white hat mission, which will be launched in October this year. The NSA said on Tuesday that Anne Neuberger, the current senior adviser to the Director, will be the leader of the cybersecurity council.

The NSA said in a statement on Tuesday:

“This new approach to cybersecurity will better position NSA to collaborate with key partners across the US government like US Cyber Command, Department of Homeland Security, and Federal Bureau of Investigation. It will also enable us to better share information with our customers so they are equipped to defend against malicious cyber activity.”
