Dems introduce bill to save top cyber role at White House

A co-founder of the Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus rebuked National Security Advisor John Bolton on Tuesday for eliminating the White House cyber coordinator position.

According to Politico, US president's new national security adviser, John Bolton, was pushing to cut the role, and now National Security Council staff has gotten an email confirming the move. "Fortunately, our bill will fill in those holes in government cybersecurity oversight by creating a National Office for Cyberspace in the White House".

Until today, the position had an important role in synchronizing cybersecurity efforts across the federal government, including managing the execution of defensive and offensive cyber operations conducted by the Pentagon.

The official explanation for the move is that the NSC cyber team has two capable senior directors that will take over the responsibilities of White House cybersecurity coordinator. "As they sit six feet apart from one another, they will be able to coordinate in real time".

According to an email sent to National Security Council employees seen by Politico, the decision is part of an effort to "streamline authority" for the senior directors who lead most NSC teams. "Streamlining management will improve efficiency, reduce bureaucracy and increase accountability", Palladino said. Cyber policy experts, lawmakers and former officials had urged Trump to replace Joyce and not to abolish the position.

"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".

"We should be investing in our nation's cyber defense, not rolling it back".

The White House is staying silent on the matter for now. The cyber coordinator role, set up during the Obama administration, was tasked with harmonising the government's approach to cybersecurity and digital warfare. Forming a cohesive cyber defense strategy has become almost impossible as hundreds of departments report into a siloed set of decision makers.
