According to recent reports, the Administration
has eliminated the post of Special Assistant to the President and Cybersecurity Coordinator. The White House cybersecurity coordinator has been instrumental in developing cyber policy and quarterbacking responses to major cyber incidents across
the federal government for nearly nine years. This is a full-time job with complex responsibilities impacting all federal departments and the private sector, and thus requires a full-time position. The decision to remove the role of cybersecurity coordinator
is a grave mistake.
