President Donald Trump’s administration has unveiled a sweeping plan to overhaul U.N. cybersecurity, according to a White House official who spoke to Reuters.
The U.NSO Cyber Security Commission, which will be headed by retired General John Hyatt, will work with the National Security Council (NSC) to develop the policy, according the White House.
The NSC will be responsible for coordinating the administration’s cyber policy, the official said.
It was unclear when the White, Pentagon and the State Department would publish a draft of the cybersecurity policy.
It would also be the first time the Trump White House has formally discussed cyber policy in public.
Trump has been criticized for his handling of the cyber crisis in the wake of the election, and he has made no secret of his disdain for the intelligence community.
The administration has said it would take steps to improve cyber defenses for the American people, but its policies and actions have been criticized as too little and too late.
