Dems Aren't Happy With White House Move to Cut Cyber Role

Cybersecurity experts and lawmakers aren't too pleased with the White House's decision to eliminate its top cyber policy role.

Not long after  reports surfaced  that the cyber coordinator position was cut from the National Security Council, some Democrats criticized the move as  "troubling"  and  "outrageous." And the cybersecurity coordinator who served under Barack Obama  told Wired , "I think that our adversaries could interpret that as a signal that this administration doesn't take the issue as seriously." But as Wired points out, the gig hasn't been around all too long.

It was created under the Obama administration, and there's no indication what will actually happen now that it's been eliminated.

The cyber coordinator role was left open last month when Rob Joyce decided to leave his post and return to the National Security Agency.

Officials say  the White House decided to get rid of the position altogether to help streamline the government's approach to cybersecurity policy.
