Another US official leaves the White House

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) –┬áThe White House announced the resignation of Cybersecurity Coordinator Rob Joyce, who decided to return to work in the US National Security Agency.

Reuters quoted a senior US official as saying that Joyce resigns his personal desire, not under pressure from US National Security Advisor John Bolton or any other officials in the US administration.

This comes after the dismissal of US Assistant Homeland Security Assistant Tom Bossert, who oversaw Joyce’s cyber security work.

Joyce’s resignation came hours after he met with US and British officials about the cyber attack on several networks of government agencies and companies in the world, which US officials accused Russian pirates of carrying out with the support of the Russian authorities, they claimed.
