NSA Doesn’t Want Sole Control of Cybersecurity Issues

Despite rumors and general concern the National Security Agency (NSA) is battling other federal agencies for the lead role in the country’s cybersecurity efforts, new comments from government officials state otherwise.

“We do not want to run cybersecurity for the U.S. government,” Lt. Gen Keith Alexander said during the RSA security conference in San Francisco, California. “I think we need to dispel the rumors.”

Alexander has led the NSA’s code-breaking and communications division since 2005, and is unaware of who will be selected to lead the White House’s cybersecurity department. The NSA has the ability to help prevent cyber attacks by making sure networks are properly secure, and will likely continue to provide security for military agencies.
