Daniel G. Wolf is director of the Information Assurance (IA) Directorate 
at the National Security Agency (NSA), where he has the responsibility 
for defining and implementing the information assurance strategy to 
protect the Global Information Grid (GIG) and all the associated

the IA programs of the NSA continue to evolve to meet the challenges of 
their current and future requirements for secure communications and 
networks, providing IA technical consulting services and high-assurance
