TOPLINE The Senate unanimously confirmed Chris Inglis on Thursday to head a new office that will coordinate cybersecurity efforts across government agencies as they fortify defenses following high-profile breaches of the military and key sectors of the economy.

KEY FACTS
As national cyber director, Inglis, who is a former deputy director of the National Security Agency, will advise the president and staff, help prevent and respond to cyberattacks and lead cybersecurity policy across non-military agencies of the government.

CRUCIAL QUOTE
Inglis told senators at his confirmation hearing that the government may have to play a bigger role in the cybersecurity of vital industries. “[It] may well be that we need to step in and [...] regulate or mandate in the same way that we’ve done” for airlines and carmakers, he said.

KEY BACKGROUND
The federal government is paying more attention to cybersecurity after several high-profile hacks in the last year. In 2020, hackers infiltrated the Pentagon and Justice Department and large companies including Microsoft through software updates of IT company SolarWinds. This spring, the ransomware hacks of Colonial Pipeline and meat processor JBS shut down the key suppliers of oil and meat until they each paid millions of dollars to hackers. President Biden signed an executive order in May that included the creation of a Cyber Safety Review Board to figure out why an attack happened and how to prevent similar ones. The order also created new, higher security security standards for software sold to the government. pg slot

WHAT TO WATCH FOR
Voting on another key Biden cybersecurity nominee, Jen Easterly, was blocked Wednesday by Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL). Scott said he supports her nomination to head the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency but vowed to block her and other Homeland Security until President Biden “visit[s] the border” with Mexico.
