Flaw finder. NGA might not be known for cybersecurity the way the National Security Agency is, but Smoot is earning NGA some strong credibility in the field through his work on enterprisewide vulnerability assessments. His team regularly identifies vulnerabilities and works hard to mitigate them before the adversary pounces. Smoot also led an agencywide analysis of traffic on the Defense Department's unclassified network. His work on cyber forensics for counterintelligence has helped elevate NGA's role in the cybersecurity dialogue within the intelligence community and made him a cybersecurity ambassador for NGA.
