    A former Machon Bais Yaakov of Boro Park graduate has earned the distinction of being the first Orthodox Jewish woman named to head a division of the National Security Agency.

    Anne Neuberger, a Baltimore resident, will head up the agency’s newly created cybersecurity directorate which is being formed to integrate the NSA’s offensive and defensive operations and is scheduled to become operational as of October 1st, reported the Wall Street Journal.

    NSA director General Paul Nakasone introduced the division at Tuesday’s International Conference on Cyber Security at Fordham University, explaining that it would create a greater emphasis on cybersecurity as a means of providing greater national security, naming the 43-year-old Neuberger as its head.

    After graduating Touro College and Columbia Business School, Neuberger, the mother of two, enrolled in the White House Fellows program, a decision that led her to a career in government.

    Assigned to the Department of Defense, Neuberger worked for the secretary of defense and the secretary of the navy before finally moving on to the NSA, where she has held several senior positions including serving as the agency’s first chief risk officer and, more recently, overseeing security efforts designed to detect and prevent Russian interference in United States elections.  She is also the founder of Sister To Sister, an organization that helps Orthodox single mothers.

    Neuberger is one of several women named to high level cybersecurity and intelligence positions under the Trump administration and among the highest-ranking women at the NSA since the retirement of deputy director Ann Caracristi in 1982. Retired Army General Keith Alexander, a former NSA director and co-chief executive of a cybersecurity firm, described Neuberger as “an exceptional leader and truly talented.”

    In a 2013 VIN News interview at an event where she was honored as an Orthodox Jewish All Star by the Jew in the City blog, Neuberger talked about juggling a demanding high profile job with a religious lifestyle, noting that because of the strong work ethic she displayed during the week, her co-workers respected her need to take off for Shabbos and Jewish holidays.

    “This is the beauty of America – people who try to balance faith and work,” said Neuberger.

    According to CNN, Neuberger will make her first public appearance in her new capacity at the Annual Billington Cybersecurity Summit in Washington being held on September 4th.
