Three top White House nominees for the Department of Homeland Security will prioritize cybersecurity initiatives if the Senate confirms them. The confirmation hearing for the three nominees happened just a couple weeks after several high-level cyberattacks.

  • Chris Cummiskey, former Acting Under Secretary for Management at the Department of Homeland Security, said the hearing’s heavy focus on cyber reflects the importance of cybersecurity to all senior positions at the department.
  • Cummiskey said Congress has gotten better at asking the right questions regarding cyber as the recent high-profile attacks are moving the dialogue forward.
  • Coordination with the reinstated national cyber director will also be essential for these nominees, said Cummiskey.
