President Barack Obama has appointed Lisa Hook—the president and CEO of Neustar, a provider of services enabling communication across networks and applications—to the National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC).
NSTAC is a group of up to 30 industry CEOs from telecommunications companies, network service providers, information technology, finance and aerospace companies who provide the president with critical, collaborative advice and expertise as well as reviews and recommendations regarding national security, cybersecurity and emergency preparedness. NSTAC seeks to develop recommendations that assure vital telecommunications links through any event or crisis and to help the U.S. government maintain a reliable, secure and resilient national communications posture.
“I’m honored to have been selected to join the president's National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee,” Hook said. “I look forward to working with my colleagues to provide the president with critical advice aimed at ensuring the reliability, preparedness and security of our increasingly complex Internet and telecommunications infrastructure.”
