Donald Trump’s Cybersecurity Team Accuses Him Of Ignoring Security Matters, Resigns En Masse

Seven members of Donald Trump’s cybersecurity team, including an Indian-origin data scientist, have resigned, accusing the US president of ignoring the pressing national security matters. In a group resignation letter, the members of the National Infrastructure Advisory Council or NIAC, whose purview includes national cyber security, cited both specific shortfalls in the administration’s approach to cyber security, and broader concerns that have undermined the “moral infrastructure” of the US, Fortune reported. “You have given insufficient attention to the growing threats to the cybersecurity of the critical systems upon which all Americans depend, including those impacting the systems supporting our democratic election process,” the letter reads. They also cited his failure “to denounce intolerance and violence of hate groups” when asked about the “horrific violence in Charlottesville” as one of the reasons why they left.
