2018 Fed 100

Federal 100: Rob Joyce

 

Name: Rob Joyce
Title: White House Cyber Coordinator
Agency: National Security Council

King of the cyber hill. Joyce, the former leader of an elite National Security Agency hacking division, has helped set the stage for national and international conversations about cybersecurity as President Donald Trump’s top adviser on information security policy. In 2017, Joyce was responsible for implementing the executive order on cybersecurity, pushed federal IT modernization as a cybersecurity strategy, introduced a more transparent framework to govern bug disclosures and helped institute “name and shame” strategies for nation state-oriented cyberattacks. Joyce has earned bipartisan respect for his expertise as the Trump administration made cybersecurity a top policy priority.
