NSA Cybersecurity Director to Retire in March

Rob Joyce, the director of cybersecurity at the National Space Agency, is set to retire on March 31, ending his three-decade-long NSA service.

David Luber, the deputy director of the Cybersecurity Directorate and former executive director of the U.S. Cyber Command, was selected to succeed Joyce, the NSA said.

As cyber director, Joyce emphasized the need to provide cyber insights to agencies, critical infrastructure operators and other industries to improve cyber threat information sharing, changing the way how the NSA deals with cyber information. According to a CyberScoop report, the NSA was historically secretive.

Speaking at the recent International Conference on Cyber Security at Fordham University, Joyce noted that the NSA’s partnership with other agencies enabled using artificial intelligence and machine learning to improve responses to Chinese hacking operations.

Before taking on the cyber director role, Joyce, a two-time Wash100 winner, served as special assistant to the president and cybersecurity coordinator at the White House as part of the National Security Council from March 2017 to 2018. He also led the NSA’s Tailored Access Operations hacking team, which performs foreign intelligence missions.
