On Friday, February 2, 2024, Fort Meade, Maryland hosted a landmark handover of command of the National Security Agency (NSA) and Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) to its new leader, U.S. Air Force Gen. Timothy D. Ho. US President Joe Biden appointed General Ho to this important position back in May 2023, recognizing his expertise in cyber warfare, defense, cryptology and electronic intelligence.

During the ceremony, General Ho, who has extensive experience in Air Force cyber structures and interactions with the NSA, expressed his confidence in the ability of the teams to cope with any challenges and maintain the US advantage over adversaries. Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks, who presided over the ceremony, emphasized the importance of the work of Cybercom and the NSA in supporting US national security.

General Paul M. Nakasone, who has commanded USCYBERCOM and NSA/CSS since May 2018 and led the organizations to a new level of operational readiness, passed the baton with words of pride and gratitude for the trust of the American people and his desire to spend time with his family after 37 years of service .

This change in command comes amid a growing cyber threat and the need to strengthen cybersecurity, making Ho’s leadership key to the continued development of the United States’ cyber defenses.

Established in 2009, US Cyber Command continues to develop its operations to defend against domestic and international cyber threats.
