During the Obama era there was a new WH role created called the Cyber Policy Adviser or Cyber Security Czar. This role was tasked with the Govts approach to cybersecurity policy and digital warfare and represented the POTUS in meetings with foreign partners at conferences and other public events relating to cyber security.

It was reported last week that John Bolton the National Security Adviser was moving to cut this position

Today an email was sent to the National Security Council announcing that the role would be ended as the National Security Council already has 2 senior directors that focus on Cyber coordination.

Trump's pick who had been serving in this role was Rob Joyce who came from the NSA will leave the WH on Friday and head back to the NSA
