Window Cleaning

The nation’s top cybersecurity agency has gone without a permanent director since former president Donald Trump fired Chris Krebs in November. Trump fired Krebs for concuring with the rest of the intelligence community in assessing that the 2020 election was secure. The position has since been filled in an acting capacity by Brandon Wales.

Krebs on Twitter called the hold “a pawn in a political gambit with grave consequences for our nation’s cybersecurity.”
