Mayer Brown announced that Washington DC-based partner Rajesh De, who leads the firm’s Cybersecurity & Data Privacy and National Security practices, has been added to the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism (INSCT)’s academic and advisory leadership team.

Joining a group of five distinguished fellows drawn from the upper echelons of the national security and intelligence communities, Mr. De will assist INSCT's mission with a variety of assignments that will directly benefit students and expand its portfolio of research and policy projects.

After nearly two decades in private practice and public service across all three branches of the US government, Mr. De is one of the most trusted voices in national security. He has held senior appointments in the White House, US Department of Justice, and US Department of Defense. He has also previously served as counsel to the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (the “9/11 Commission”), the Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction and Terrorism, and the U.S. Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. Before returning to Mayer Brown in 2015, Mr. De was the general counsel of the National Security Agency.

INSCT, a collaboration between the Syracuse University College of Law and the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, is a multidisciplinary, university-based center for the study of national and international security issues.
