DHS, CISA Name New Cyber Safety Review Board Members

The Department of Homeland Security and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency announced new and departing members of the Cyber Safety Review Board.

On Monday, the DHS named Jamil Jafer of the National Security Institute, past Potomac Officers Club event speaker David Luber of the NSA, Katie Nickels of Red Canary and past Wash100 winner Chris Krebs of Sentinel One as new board members. They will replace departing members Katie Moussouris of Luta Security, Chris Novak of the Verizon Threat Research Advisory Center, Tony Sager of the Center for Internet Security and Wendi Whitmore of Palo Alto Networks, DHS said.

Meanwhile, Easterly has appointed Robert Silvers, DHS undersecretary for policy and a past Wash100 awardee, and Heather Adkins, vice president for security engineering at Google, to second terms as chair and deputy chair, respectively.

Jen Easterly, director of the CISA, a 2024 Wash100 winner and past POC event speaker, said that the addition of Jafer, Luber, Nickels and Krebs and their expertise to the board will enable a positive change in the country’s cybersecurity ecosystem.

Composed of cybersecurity professionals, the CSRB has been fact-finding and giving recommendations after a major cyberattack. In April, the board recommended that Microsoft overhaul its security culture after a China-sponsored hacking group targeted its Exchange Online service.
