Donald Trump appointed former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani to cyber security position


Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani will lend his cyber security expertise to the Trump administration, President-elect Donald Trump's team announced in a statement on Thursday.

Here's an excerpt from the statement:
"Giuliani was asked to initiate this process because of his long and very successful government career in law enforcement and his now sixteen years of work providing security solutions in the private sector."

Giuliani first announced his new role on "Fox and Friends" Thursday morning. He said he would be leading a new cyber security committee for the President-elect.

The committee will meet with Trump regularly to discuss best cyber security methods.

"It's his belief, which I share, that a lot of the solutions are out there. We're just not sharing them. ... My belief is, as always, that the answer to cyber security is gonna be found in the private sector," Giuliani said.
