WHITE HOUSE VICTORY —  Cipher Brief Expert and former NSA Deputy Director Chris Inglis is expected to be nominated as the White House’s first National Cyber Director.  If confirmed by the Senate, Inglis will become the first person to take on the role that was recommended by the Cyberspace Solarium Commission.  Inglis is widely respected in the cyber community so strike this as a victory for the White House if he is confirmed in the role.  Inglis was rumored to be a top contender for the role of NSA Director back when there was conversation around spinning off the NSA and US Cyber Command.
