SECDEF Visits NSA and USCYBERCOM’s Integrated Cyber Center
By NSA News - May 28, 2020
FORT MEADE, Md., May 21, 2020 — On Wednesday, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper toured the National Security Agency (NSA) and U.S. Cyber Command’s (USCC) Integrated Cyber Center (ICC) on Fort Meade. This visit coincides with the USCC 10th anniversary of its stand-up as a new sub-unified combatant command.

Secretary Esper received briefings on NSA and USCC’s capabilities to defend the nation, and GEN Nakasone led the Secretary on a tour of the ICC. All personnel involved wore masks when it was not possible to maintain a six-foot distance from one another.

The Integrated Cyber Center is a 24/7 worldwide cyber watch center that facilitates real-time coordination, deconfliction, and intelligence. Personnel from both the NSA and U.S. Cyber Command work closely in the ICC to achieve national security objectives.
