Last week, President-elect Donald Trump received a comprehensive briefing on Russian hacking related to the 2016 Presidential election. In response, Trump released a statement that included the following:
"Whether it is our government, organizations, associations or business we need to aggressively combat and stop cyberattacks. I will appoint a team to give me a plan within 90 days of taking office.”
These “teams” tend to be made up of a combination of Washington insiders with intelligence and/or military experience as well as an assortment of industry folks. For example, President Obama’s recent Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity included former NSA director Keith Alexander, former IBM CEO Sam Palmisano, etc.
