What has the United States learned about cyber security threats and how is it prepared to respond? How do we ensure the nation’s competitive ability in the 21st century? These are among the topics the former Director of the National Security Agency and Commander of U.S. Cyber Command, will address at a November 8, 2022 luncheon at Belmont University.

Admiral Michael Rogers, a retired Navy four-star, served over three decades as a Cryptologic Warfare Officer, leading to appointment as America’s top cryptology and cyber DoD official. Rogers led that effort for four years directing the Defense Department’s cyber security mission.

The Tennessee World Affairs Council and Belmont University’s Center for Global Citizenship invite you to join Admiral Rogers at a luncheon at 11:30 a.m. CT on November 8th. This is your opportunity for first-hand insights and perspectives on the cyber threats facing the U.S. government, businesses and individuals from the expanding universe of virtual threats.

The luncheon will be followed by a panel discussion with Admiral Rogers moderated by Congressman Jim Cooper featuring government, industry and academia experts. The luncheon is set for the Massey Board Room in Belmont’s Massey Business Center. Both programs are open to the public and information and registration is on the Tennessee World Affairs Council Web site (TNWAC.org). Contact TNWAC President Patrick Ryan for information on corporate sponsorship of Admiral Rogers’ visit and programs. (pat@TNWAC.org)


Admiral Michael Rogers retired in June 2018 after nearly 37 years of service, culminating his career with more than four years leading U.S. Cyber Command and the National Security Agency (NSA). Starting his career as a surface warfare officer and ultimately transitioning to duty as a cryptology warfare officer, he served around the globe afloat and ashore, focusing on maritime operations, intelligence, and cyber.

Admiral Rogers is an NROTC graduate of Auburn University, holds a master of science in national security, is a distinguished graduate of the National War College, and is a graduate of highest distinction from the Naval War College. He is a Seminar XXI Fellow and a Harvard Senior Executive in National Security alum. He has commanded at the unit, numbered fleet, and service component level and at the sub-unified level and ran the largest intelligence organization in the U.S. government at NSA, as well as its newest unified command in U.S. Cyber Command.
