The first major cyber-policy appointment in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) came this week, reports CyberScoop. Christopher Krebs, a cybersecurity policy executive and vice-chair of the National Cyber Security Alliance began work as a senior counselor to John Kelly, the Secretary of Homeland Security.
Previously, Krebs worked as a policy adviser for DHS during the George W. Bush administration and most recently as a cybersecurity policy executive for Microsoft.
Krebs, whose appointment was first reported by Politico, was among several new jobs announced recently by DHS. President Trump announced his intent to nominate David Glawe as the undersecretary for intelligence and analysis. Glawe is currently the head of intelligence at U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Trump also named Benjamin Cassidy as assistance secretary of legislative affairs at DHS and Jonathan Rath Hoffman as assistant secretary of public affairs.
