"I've given considerable thought to the way we do business, both in terms of the complexity inherent in carrying out our lawful, authorized mission, and the inherent risks that attach to the activities we undertake," ADM Rogers said.

"Enterprise risk management is considered a best practice in many fields and amplifies an organization's ability to recognize, integrate, and assess the risk-reward value from multiple perspectives to make more informed, timely, and defensible decisions," he said when he made his announcement.

ADM Rogers also said that it is critical the Agency thinks broadly, rigorously, and systematically about the potential risks involved as it executes its mission pursuant to relevant laws, policies, and priorities, and ensures it renders informed and thoughtful decisions and recommendations to its external stakeholders and overseers.

ADM Rogers selected Anne Neuberger to assume the role of NSA's Chief Risk Officer, which will start at the beginning of October.

Ms. Neuberger will work closely alongside all senior leaders at the Agency. In her first year, she will focus on creating and maturing a methodology and processes to assess the various risks across different missions and work toward meeting specific objectives assigned by the director.
