Rear Adm. Ross Myers, chief of staff at the U.S. Cyber Command, has been elevated to the rank of vice admiral, Politico reported Thursday. Myers succeeds Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart and received his confirmation from the Senate on May 23.

Prior to his promotion, Myers served as the director of plans and policy at the command and held the role of assistant deputy director for global operations at the Joint Staff. The command will utilize Myers' promotion to reinforce and secure the 2020 polls from potential foreign interference.

“Ideally, no foreign actor is going to target our electoral process,” said Timothy Haugh, head of the Cyber National Mission Force at Cyber Command.
