Trump’s transition team on Thursday named former Cisco executive Ray Dolby as an executive director for cybersecurity.
Dolby joined the team as an adviser in March after being tapped to head the National Security Council.
He will serve as the chairman of the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Council, which oversees the government’s cybersecurity policies.
The council was created in March and was originally set up to address cyber threats to the U.S. government.
It was reconfigured in the wake of the Sony hacking, with Dolby joining the group to be its chief security adviser.
Dolor’s appointment comes on the heels of the announcement of another executive director, John McAfee, who had served on the transition team since July.
The National Security Agency, the U-2 spy plane, and the Air Force are also reportedly under consideration.
