Washington, Aug 27: Seven members of Dold Trump's cybersecurity advisory council have resigned, citing the US President's insufficient attention to cyber threats.

According to a report on Saturday, seven members of the tiol Infrastructure Advisory Council, whose purview includes tiol cybersecurity, resigned en masse expressing concern over how Trump and his administration undermined the "moral infrastructure" of the US. The members cited specific shortfalls in the administration's approach to cybersecurity. "You have given insufficient attention to the growing threats to the cybersecurity of the critical systems upon which all Americans depend, including those impacting the systems supporting our democratic election process," the group resigtion letter stated. The letter also mentioned Trump's failure to condemn neo-zis and white supremacists after a violent protest earlier this month in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Those who resigned included former US Chief Data Scientist DJ Patil and former Office of Science and Technology Policy Chief of Staff Cristin Dorgelo; both Obama-era apointees. (IANS)
