The pandemic affected everyone this year, but our mission didn’t slow down. As our Director, GEN Paul Nakasone said, we “are one team, and each of us contributes our unique expertise to a mission that is all the more critical in times of crisis.”
Throughout 2020, our workforce contributed our expertise in many ways:
NSA worked to secure our elections
The security of the 2020 Presidential election was NSA’s top priority in 2020. We were part of the Whole-of-Government effort to identify and counter foreign interference and malign influence threats to the 2020 U.S. elections. NSA generated vital insights and shared them with partner agencies like U.S. Cyber Command, the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Our efforts strived to assure all audiences, and most importantly, the American public, that NSA, USCYBERCOM, and other U.S. government partners together protected the U.S. elections from foreign interference and influence campaigns.
