Brig. Gen. John A. Davis
Deputy Commander
Joint Task Force for Global Network Operations
Defense Department

Davis directs the operations and defense of DOD’s communications and computing systems, which is no small task.

During his tenure, he has dramatically improved the department’s information security, and his efforts have resulted in a 60 percent decrease in successful penetrations of DOD’s information systems.
