Federal 100: Lt. Gen. Keith Alexander

Lt. Gen. Keith Alexander
Director
National Security Agency

Alexander has consolidated the cyber mission planning and execution commands that support all 10 combatant commanders, and he helped oversee the development of a comprehensive, integrated and joint specialized cyber technical training course at Naval Air Station Pensacola. In addition, he has been nominated to lead the Defense Department's new Cyber Command.

“While many of [Alexander’s] accomplishments are things that you might never hear about because of the sensitive nature of the work that NSA does, he has significantly shaped the national security landscape and dramatically improved the security of DOD networks and the protection of our people, information and information systems,” said David Wennergren, deputy assistant secretary of Defense for information management and technology and DOD's deputy chief information officer.
