We can all help create a safer world online. Who better to discuss the importance of taking steps to be a cyber warrior than with a leader in the area of cybersecurity? During this #CyberChats Zoom webinar, questions from novices and cyber fanatics alike are welcomed as we interview a senior leader at the National Security Agency (NSA), Rob Joyce, NSA Director of Cybersecurity.

As NSA's Director of Cybersecurity, Mr. Joyce oversees the agency’s Cybersecurity Directorate, established in October 2019 to prevent and eradicate cyber threats to the Department of Defense, National Security Systems, and the Defense Industrial Base. View last year’s talk with Rob Joyce during the 2021 Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week via the link below.
