Google executive takes a leadership role in DHS' fight against disinformation

From this week, a former top advisor to former President Barack Obama has joined the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as a senior leader in charge of "tackling misinformation."

On Monday, Kristie Canegallo, who had been vice president of Trust and Safety at Google since March 2018, was named chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security.

“I am excited to share with you that Kristie Canegallo will join our Department as our new Chief of Staff on January 10, 2022,” DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in a statement.

“I have worked closely with Kristie in the past and know firsthand that she will be a great colleague and of tremendous support to us all,” Mayorkas said.
