Rudolph Giuliani, chairman and CEO of security consulting firm Giuliani Partners, has been selected to advise President-elect Donald Trump on cybersecurity challenges facing the private sector.
Giuliani will initiate efforts to gain private sector leaders’ input on cybersecurity matters that can inform the government’s plans, the transition team said Thursday.
Trump looks to host a series of meeting with senior company executives to gather “experiential and anecdotal information” on cyber-related challenges facing each leader’s firms as well as measures to address those challenges, the press release stated.
Giuliani also serves as chairman of the global cybersecurity practice at law firm Greenberg Traurig.
He previously served as mayor of New York City, U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York and associate attorney general at the Justice Department.
Giuliani practiced law at Patterson, Belknap, Webb and Tyler and worked as deputy attorney general and chief of staff to the deputy attorney general at DoJ.
