Make US cybersecurity great again

Since 2009, the US Department of Homeland Security has a National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC). A 24-hour, DHS-led coordinated watch and warning center that will improve national efforts to address threats and incidents affecting the nation's critical information technology and cyber infrastructure. 

Cyber threats are critical threats for US security nowadays but new President elected, Donald Trump, decided to named Rudy Giuliani as his special advisor on cybersecurity issues. Former Mayor of NYC founded its own consulting group Giuliani Partners which includes as well a cybesecurity practise (giulianisecurity.com).
