Donald Trump has finally found a more permanent spot for his friend and controversial former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Mr Giuliani, Vice President of the Trump transition team, will share his views with the President-elect concerning cyber threats in the private sector, as Mr Trump plans to meet with corporations, and discuss security breaches and how to solve them.



The former mayor, who was known for stamping down on violent crime and drug users and was criticised for his “broken windows” policing, is the chairman of global security firm Greenberg Traurig and also of Giuliani Partners, an international security consulting firm.

Last month Mr Giuliani, the man who claimed he had saved more black lives than Beyonce, removed his name for consideration in Mr Trump’s cabinet. He was originally considered as a top pick for secretary of state, but Rex Tillerson, the oil tycoon at ExxonMobil, was given the job.

“This is not about me; it is about what is best for the country and the new administration,” Mr Giuliani said in December.

Really? Giuliani As private sector cyber security advisor? Many people asks if mr. Giuliani can even turn on a computer?


Donald Trump’s appointment of Rudy Giuliani as a cyber security advisor has been met with scepticism online, with some Twitter users questioning the ethics of his appointment and how tech savvy the former New York mayor actually is.

Under his new role, Giuliani will be “sharing his expertise and insight” with the president-elect on private sector cyber security problems, a role some online have already criticized as being too vague in its very definition.


"Expertise and insight"? What expertise does Giuliani have with cyber security ?

The Trump cabinet is getting more fun for each day.

What say you ATS?

Is an advisor a paid position? I don't think it is.

Juliani is an arrogant ass, but he does have some clout in the inner circle. So maybe his position is more symbolic and for protection than anything else. Or, like the kid who is picked last to be on the team, they felt sorry for him. (sad to watch him kick rocks in the corner)

He just reminds me of wanting to slap the smug look off his face like Rumsfeld. Way above the common folk. (IMHO)

Giuliani lol. He looks a tad over the hill. Not sure if it's dementia or senility. As far as your question concerning his efficacy with turning on computers, he knows how to turn them off. Remember WTC7? Pull it, we just had to pull it.

Cheers - Dave

Lol the mayor is over his head and doesnt have a clue about cyber security. However we all know he isnt the one that will be putting the reports together or doing any analysis of cyber security issues hes simply the guy they will give the reports too. My guess is he will have an aid someone with cyber security experience thay will explain everything and the mayor and trump will go over options or plans from a business standpoint. He's basically a figure head like all politicians.

Let me give you a scarier point: he does have insight on securities - the investment kind.

And if you wanted someone to help out wheeling and dealing in the financial world (buying and selling debts (like the mortgage on your house) then Giuliani's your man. I doubt he could tell a hacker from a phreaker or if he knows when someone he intends to hire is really as good at computers as they say they are.

...but buying and selling people? Yep. he's good at that.

This presidency is a reality show. what a mockery of the entire system it has become.

I mean, this isn't a "I dislike their political viewpoints" type thing...this is simply watching someone put together a entire cabinet made of gameshow contestants.

Funny..even the ATS Trumpets are scratching their head on this one..gonna have to really spin this one. I recommend calling everyone a snowflake at least a dozen times in order to make this seem fine.
