NCTC Newsroom

After more than three years of distinguished leadership as the Director of the National Counterterrorism Center, Nick Rasmussen has informed me of his decision to depart federal service at the end of this year.

NCTC Director Nick Rasmussen is featured in this week’s episode of Intelligence Matters with Michael Morell, in an interview that gives insight into the progress made against ISIS in the battlefield, why al-Qa‘ida is still a priority, primary threats currently facing the Homeland, and how the terror threat has evolved.

NCTC Deputy Director John Mulligan spoke before a crowd of about 2,000 defense and intelligence professionals as well as industry partners at the Department of Defense Intelligence Information System (DoDIIS) Worldwide Conference in St. Louis, Missouri, Aug. 15. The theme of this year's event was "Dominating Cyberspace Against Persistent Threats."

NCTC Director Nick Rasmussen participated in a counterterrorism-focused panel at the Aspen Security Forum July 22 along with Michael Chertoff, former Department of Homeland Security secretary; Gen. Michael Hayden, former director of the National Security Agency and Central Intelligence Agency; Avril Haines, former Deputy National Security Advisor during the Obama administration.
