A posting from Dark Reading in there New section: Major information security event Black Hat has announced that General Keith Alexander — Commander, U.S. Cyber Command/Director, National Security Agency/Chief, Central Security Service (NSA/CSS) — will present the Day One keynote address at Black Hat USA 2013 in Las Vegas this July.
In 2010, the U.S. Senate confirmed GEN Alexander to head U.S. Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM), as a four-star general. The establishment of USCYBERCOM both unified and strengthened the American Defense Department’s work to protect vital networks and ensure integration of cyber operations.
A highly regarded advocate of battlefield visualization and ‘data fusion’ for more useful intelligence, Gen. Alexander has also led NSA/CSS since 2005. NSA/CSS gives the nation a decisive edge to make information and information technology an asset for the United States and a liability for its adversaries. It applies tools and tradecraft with creativity and agility — maintaining capabilities that exceed what others think is possible. The aim is to discover, make sense of, and securely share information at Net speed. What’s more, NSA/CSS measurably improves the security of critical information systems and other operations.
