Rob Silvers, recently nominated for undersecretary for Strategy Policy and Plans for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), was named a winner of the 2021 Wash100 Award for the first time in his federal career for leading the efforts to defend our national security through cyber defense, policy and improve our nation’s cyber capabilities to address our national security needs.
Following President Biden’s inauguration in Jan. 2021, it was reported that the administration would nominate Rob Silvers for a role with DHS to guide our nation’s cybersecurity strategy and oversee digital security and innovative efforts for our national security needs.
“Rob is extremely easy to work with,” said Ari Schwartz, a former senior cybersecurity official in the Obama administration who worked with Silvers. “He’s very thoughtful and listens to all sides of [cybersecurity] issues. He would ensure that CISA issues would remain top-tier issues at DHS.”
