Suzanne Spaulding, senior adviser at the CSIS Homeland Security Program, discusses the need for a cyber coordinator at the White House, and the congressional plan to make the post permanent.


In May, the role of White House Cyber Coordinator was axed, and the White House intends to keep that spot vacant. However, legislation moving through Congress could make the position into a permanent spot on the National Security Council. Suzanne Spaulding, senior adviser at the CSIS Homeland Security Program, says that the plan has some promise.   “For someone in the White House to have the role of pulling together all the elements in government that are involved with the threat of malicious cyber activity, I think that’s an incredibly important role,” said Spaulding. “Cyber has wide ranging implications across departments and agencies. Different capabilities and legal authorities, different perspectives on threat information… that requires White House coordination.”
