Address Allegations of Hostile Workplace at National Security Administration

Target: President Joe Biden, United States

Goal: Advocate for enhanced oversight and accountability in national security appointments.

The recent allegations surrounding Anne Neuberger, a prominent figure in national cybersecurity policy and a member of President Joe Biden’s National Security Council, have raised concerns about the accountability and conduct of individuals in positions of power within the U.S. government.

Reportedly, during her tenure at the National Security Agency (NSA), Anne Neuberger faced allegations of creating a hostile workplace through inappropriate behavior toward her colleagues. A 2015 NSA inspector general’s report found that she violated NSA policy by disrespecting colleagues, although it did not substantiate allegations of fostering a hostile work environment.

Moreover, recent allegations, not previously reported, have emerged concerning Neuberger’s behavior during a meeting involving U.S. cybersecurity colleagues and a visiting delegation from India. While these allegations must be viewed with appropriate qualifiers such as “reportedly” or “allegedly,” they fit a pattern of behavior established in the inspector general’s findings.

These allegations raise critical questions about the conduct and oversight of individuals holding influential positions within national security and cybersecurity policy. The National Security Council’s role is paramount in guiding the nation’s response to digital threats, making it essential that individuals within this council demonstrate the highest standards of professionalism and accountability. Take action now.


Dear President Joe Biden,

We, the concerned citizens of the United States, write to bring to your attention a matter of utmost importance for the integrity and effectiveness of our national security and cybersecurity policies. Recent allegations surrounding Anne Neuberger, a member of your National Security Council, have raised serious concerns about the conduct of individuals in positions of power.

While we acknowledge that allegations must be treated with caution and due process, they underscore the need for enhanced oversight and accountability in national security appointments. The National Security Council plays a pivotal role in safeguarding our nation against digital threats, and its members must exhibit the highest standards of professionalism.

In light of these allegations, we urge you to ensure that all individuals appointed to key national security positions are thoroughly vetted and held to the highest standards of conduct and ethics. The security and trust of the American people depend on the integrity of those who guide our national cybersecurity policy.

We believe that by addressing these concerns and implementing stricter regulations for appointments in national security, we can strengthen our nation’s cybersecurity defenses and maintain the trust of the American people.
