Trump Picks Rudy Giuliani to Meet with Companies on Cybersecurity

According to President-Elect Donald Trump’s team, his administration will hold private industry meetings on cybersecurity preparedness, led by Rudy Giuliani. While the announcement went public today, there are still very few details on what may be involved.

“The president-elect decided that he wanted to bring in, on a regular basis, the people in the private sector, the corporate leaders in particular, and thoughts leaders in the private sector, who are working on security for cyber, because we’re so far behind,” Giuliani said on Fox & Friends.

Giuliani, who runs a security consulting firm, said that he would be in charge of coordinating in the group. A statement released today by the transition team said “it is contemplated” that the president-elect’s team with hold meetings with “companies which have faced or are facing challenges similar to those facing the government and public entities today,” including hacking and other security threats.

It is unclear which companies may be involved in the meetings, Giuliani’s TV announcement made it seem that the companies in attendance would include security companies, while the statement from the transition team suggested the meetings would be comprised of companies that have been targets themselves.
