EEI Congratulates National Cyber Director Chris Inglis

WASHINGTON (June 17, 2021) – Edison Electric Institute (EEI) President Tom Kuhn today issued the following statement:

"On behalf of America’s electric companies, EEI congratulates National Cyber Director Chris Inglis on his Senate confirmation. We commend Director Inglis for his commitment to public service and believe that his nearly 30-year tenure with the National Security Agency makes him exceptionally qualified to serve as our nation’s first cyber director.

“The electric power industry and our government partners have a shared responsibility to protect our nation’s energy infrastructure. Through the Electricity Subsector Coordinating Council, which serves as the principal liaison between the federal government and our industry, we look forward to working with Director Inglis and his team, and with leaders from across the Biden administration, to ensure that we continue to enhance our collective cybersecurity posture in the face of evolving cyber threats.”
