Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., highlighted President Donald Trump's failure to produce a cyberseucrity policy within 90 days of taking office, reports The Hill.

During remarks at a cybersecurity conference hosted by Tempe-based Arizona State University Wednesday, Mr. McCain called the administration's leadership on the issue "weak".

"As America's enemies seized the initiative in cyberspace, the last administration offered no serious cyber deterrence policy and strategy," McCain said, according to The Hill. "And while the current administration promised a cyber policy within 90 days of inauguration, we still have not seen a plan." 

In January, prior to taking office, Mr. Trump had vowed to establish a team that would help government, organizations and businesses combat cyberattacks within 90 days of his inauguration.
