Sky News: US military hackers conducting offensive operations in support of Ukraine, says head of Cyber Command

In an exclusive interview with Sky News, General Paul Nakasone, director of the National Security Agency (NSA), confirmed for the first time that the US had “conducted a series of operations” in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

  • General Nakasone had delivered a keynote speech at CyCon, an international conference on cyber conflict, hosted by NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE) in Tallinn, and praised the partnerships between democratic states as a key strategic benefit.
  • Speaking in Tallinn, the general, who is also director of the National Security Agency (NSA), told Sky News that he is concerned “every single day” about the risk of a Russian cyber attack targeting the US and said that the hunt forward activities were an effective way of protecting both America as well as allies.
  • “My job is to provide a series of options to the secretary of defence and the president, and so that’s what I do.”
  • “This is why we’re working with a series of partners to ensure we prevent that, not only against the United States but against our allies as well.”
