WASHINGTON – Today Paladin Capital Group Founder Michael Steed released the following statement on National Cyber Director and former Paladin Managing Director Chris Inglis stepping down after nearly two years in the White House:

“America’s critical infrastructure and cyberspace are a safer place because of Chris Inglis’ service. Having had the privilege of working with Chris for many years, there is no one who better understands cybersecurity, defense of the country’s critical infrastructure and the opportunities to foster cyber technologies to improve America’s cybersecurity posture. Because of his vision and service, there is a new National Cyber Strategy for the first time in five years, creating a much-needed roadmap to protect critical infrastructure and address some of the most complex issues the country faces. Paladin Capital is honored to have worked with Chris Inglis and we are grateful for his years of service as the first National Cyber Director.”
