Leaders On The Plains
Admiral Michael Rogers (Ret.)

Former Commander of U.S. Cyber Command
Former Director of the National Security Agency


A conversation with Auburn University alumnus Admiral Michael Rogers. In a moderated discussion with McCrary Institute Director Frank Cilluffo, the Admiral reflected upon his experiences on campus, in government, and in the private sector, after a long career devoted to public service. The conversation spanned a range of cybersecurity-related issues including major threat actors, cyber defense, deterrence, other U.S. response measures, and the best path forward for the United States and its allies.

Adm. Michael S. Rogers retired from the U.S. Navy in 2018 after nearly 37 years of naval service rising to the rank of four-star admiral. He culminated his career with a four-year tour as commander of the U.S. Cyber Command and director of the National Security Agency. In those roles, he worked with the leadership of the U.S. government, the Department of Defense and the U.S. intelligence community, as well as their international counterparts in the conduct of cyber and intelligence activity across the globe. He also assisted in the development of national and international policy with respect to cyber, intelligence and technology — including extensive work with corporate leadership in the finance, IT, telecommunications and technology sectors.
