“Inglis, former NSA deputy director, was unanimously confirmed in 2021 as Biden’s top adviser in all things cybersecurity. The newly created role involved the coordination and implementation of national cyber policy and strategy, working closely with CISA director Jen Easterly, and facilitating national cyber incident response efforts,”
The report added:
“He most recently worked to craft the government’s National Cyber Strategy, which President Biden is expected to announce in the coming days. It reportedly goes much further than previous cybersecurity policies and executive orders, according to The Washington Post, which obtained a draft copy.”
Inglis stated in a tweet this week:
“Today I am stepping down from my role as the Nation’s inaugural National Cyber Director at @ONCD. I do so with the utmost gratitude to @POTUS, @VP, and Congress for giving me the opportunity to serve in this Administration. Mr. President, thank you for placing your trust in me and for placing such a high priority on providing a safe, equitable, and resilient cyberspace for all.”
Other than Inglis, many other Biden officials have resigned from their positions.
At the start of this year, the commissioner of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner, Chris Magnus, resigned from his position too.
The reports suggest that the Dept of Homeland Security Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas and several others pushed him out and tried to accuse him for numerous failures at the chaotic southern border.
