Background: Today, President Trump announced his intent to nominate Christopher Krebs as Under Secretary for National Protection and Programs, Department of Homeland Security.
The following statement is from Jonathan Spalter, president & CEO, USTelecom:
“Securing and protecting our nation’s critical physical and cybersecurity infrastructure is a national priority of the highest order. The nomination of Chris Krebs is a clear signal of the determination and focus that our government assigns to this vital mission. Mr. Krebs has been an exceptional leader in both the public and private sectors and will bring keen instincts and expertise to the position.
