Lt. Gen. Paul Nakasone, the White House's nominee to lead the U.S. Cyber Command and the National Security Agency, has said he intends to offer a recommendation about the plan to split Cybercom from NSA within three months of his confirmation for the dual-hatted role, Nextgov reported Thursday.

Nakasone, current head of the Army Cyber Command, told lawmakers during a Senate confirmation hearing Thursday that he has “no predisposed opinion“ about the separation and that he will seek to facilitate collaboration between the two organizations if the split pushes through.Report: Lt.

“My experience is that the dual-hat arrangement has enabled the operationally close partnership between USCYBERCOM and the NSA, which benefits both in the accomplishment of their respective missions,“ Nakasone, a 2018 Wash100 recipient, said in a written response to a question by the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Nakasone's appearance before the Senate panel came weeks after the White House announced his nomination for the post.
