Christopher Krebs: CISA to Work With DOE on Maintaining US Tech Leadership

Christopher Krebs

Christopher Krebs, director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and 2019 Wash100 Award recipient, said that U.S. “innovation edge” will retain the nation’s status as a global technological leader, Nextgov reported Wednesday. Krebs told attendees at a Chertoff Group event in Washington that CISA seeks to work with the Energy Department in protecting critical systems as the U.S. continues to compete with Russia and China in tech leadership.

Dimitri Kusnezov, DOE’s deputy undersecretary for artificial intelligence and technology, said the department secretary is “fully invested in both AI and supercomputing” as DOE launches new projects in exascale technology. The government has been working to mitigate the interference of Chinese technology, specifically Huawei-developed products, to U.S. efforts such as the planned 5G rollout.
