Rob Joyce

Golden Gov: Federal Executive of the Year

Serving as the NSA’s Director of Cybersecurity, Rob Joyce is tasked with overseeing the agency’s Cybersecurity Directorate, an effort to prevent and wipe out cyber threats to the Department of Defense, National Security Systems and the Defense Industrial Base. Joyce’s tenure with the NSA dates back to 1989 and includes roles such as Associate Deputy Director, Counterterrorism and Special U.S. Liaison Officer to the U.S. Embassy in London. In an interview with CyberScoop last year, Joyce spoke of the importance of intel sharing among cyber professionals, noting that “it doesn’t do anybody any good if we know a thing and don’t do something. Doing is really the focus in the cybersecurity area. And if you’ve got secrets and understanding and you don’t operationalize those, they don’t count.”
