Ledgett, former NSA number two, joins Hakluyt in Washington Free
The former deputy director of the NSA, in charge of offensive operations, is much in demand in the private sector.
The National Security Agency (NSA) is the US intelligence agency responsible for interceptions, collecting massive quantities of data and monitoring communications globally. The NSA has one of the biggest budgets of all the US intelligence agencies.
This summer the NSA discreetly eliminated the last traces of its defensive branch, the Information Assurance Directorate (IAD), completing a merger of its offensive and defensive activities that has been two years in the making.
