USA government scraps cyber coordinator role in White House

USA government scraps cyber coordinator role in White House

The move comes after a National Security Council (NSC) official confirmed to The Hill that the administration chose to eliminate the position of cybersecurity coordinator. That official would synchronize cybersecurity policy across agencies in much the same way that White House cybersecurity coordinator Rob Joyce was doing until he stepped down last week.

The White House eliminated the position of cybersecurity coordinator, a National Security Council official confirmed to CBS News on Tuesday.

The National Security Council reportedly argues the move's about reducing bureaucracy, not reducing security, according to a statement obtained by several news outlets.

"As they sit six feet apart from one another, they will be able to coordinate [cyber matters and policy] in real time", NSC spokesperson Robert Palladino stated.

Mark Warner, ranking Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, said the administration should be "investing in our nation's cyber defense, not rolling it back".

"Since Ambassador Bolton has come onto the job, he and I speak regularly", she said, describing cybersecurity strategy work between herself and Bolton as "hand in glove".

Langevin emphasized the need for a "designated expert to harmonize cyber policy" due to the many cybersecurity challenges the country faces, "whether during major incidents or when establishing norms of responsible state behavior in cyberspace".

Former Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert, Jocye's boss, oversaw the cybersecurity program and was pushed out of the White House on Bolton's second day on the job.

"The US needs cybersecurity leadership today more than ever, but the current structure of our top officials needs to be overhauled if we hope to correct course". On May 3, the Defense Department announced it would be elevating U.S. Cyber Command to a combatant command, putting it at the same level as other unified combatant commanders and allowing Army Lt. Gen. Paul M. Nakasone to report directly to Defense Secretary James Mattis.
