The National Security Agency has established a cybersecurity directorate to consolidate the agency's cyber defense and foreign intelligence operations. NSA said Monday that the new directorate will handle information sharing and other collaborative efforts between the agency and its partner entities in an effort to streamline activities such as risk assessments and threat intelligence.

According to NSA, the directorate will initially work on strengthening the security posture of critical infrastructure and other national security assets. As part of its first activities, the directorate will  focus specifically on protecting the nation’s weaponry and defense industrial base. NSA also intends to pursue workforce-related efforts to support the directorate.
