The US Congress approved the new director of the NSA.

US senators approved Lieutenant-General Paul Nakasone to the post of director of the National Security Agency (NSA) and head of the US Cyber ​​Command, reports TASS.




According to media reports, before the appointment, "Nakasone was the deputy head of the Cyber ​​Command of the Armed Forces, served in the Office of Strategic Planning and Policy of the Committee of Chiefs of Staff, has experience in combat operations in the Republic of Korea, Iraq and Afghanistan."

In addition, the general previously participated in the development of programs designed to destroy the computer networks and mobile devices of terrorists.

It is reported that already this year, Nakasone "is to complete the process of transforming Cyber ​​Command into a separate structure of the US Armed Forces, the same as the Central or European Command."

Before his appointment, both of these posts were held by Admiral Michael Rogers, who resigned after three years of service.

    has experience in military operations in the Republic of Korea ...
    The military operations of the United States and other forces under the UN flag in Korea ended in 1953, judging by the age he could not participate there. So in our time, the DPRK computers hacked, after which the Americans accused the North Koreans of hacker attacks.
