Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani will lend his expertise and advice to President-elect Donald Trump on cyber security issues in the private sector, according to a press release from Trump’s transition team.
“This is a rapidly evolving field both as to intrusions and solutions and it is critically important to get timely information from all sources,” the press release reads.
In addition, from time to time because of the changing nature of this problem, it is contemplated that the President-elect will be hosting a series of meetings with senior corporate executives from companies which have faced or are facing challenges similar to those facing the government and public entities today, such as hacking, intrusions, disruptions, manipulations, theft of data and identities, and securing information technology infrastructure.
Trump desires private sector input to help the government address the increasing problem of cyber intrusion.
Giuliani has experience working as the CEO of an international security consulting firm as well as experience in law enforcement.
