2017 Fed 100
Federal 100: Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse
Name: Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.)
Agency/Company: U.S. Senate
Senator Cyber. Whitehouse has been a vocal advocate of cybersecurity legislation. He has also made a name for himself by fighting against the pervasive contagion of botnets — the zombie networks that can wreak havoc through denial-of-service attacks. In addition, he co-led the Cyber Policy Task Force at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, which produced a key report on the future of cybersecurity for the Trump administration. Whitehouse’s current priorities include creating the post of governmentwide inspector general for cybersecurity, who would conduct white hat penetration testing and audit network protection at civilian agencies.
