Donald Trump’s transition team has hired Rudy Giuliani as a cybersecurity adviser. In his new role, the former New York City mayor will enlist help from a coalition of private tech companies (so far unnamed) to address ways to protect against hacking and other cyber-threats. Giuliani announced the new gig on Fox & Friends this morning:
“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, the thought leaders, who were working on security for cyber.”
