Senator Burr Statement on CISA Director Christopher Krebs

November 17, 2020

Today, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) issued the following statement on the departure of Christopher Krebs as Director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA):

“Chris Krebs is a dedicated public servant who has done a remarkable job during a challenging time. Chris and his team at CISA have worked diligently to strengthen our election infrastructure, helping to shore up vulnerabilities and build trust between State and Federal Governments. The creative and innovative campaign CISA developed to promote cybersecurity should serve as a model for other government agencies. Their efforts were essential in protecting the 2020 U.S. presidential election against threats of foreign interference. I’m grateful for all Chris has done and I wish him the best in his next chapter.”
