The White House has eliminated its top cybersecurity advisor post, Politico reports. Rob Joyce, who announced his resignation weeks ago, will be the last so-called cyber czar.

Why it matters: This is the latest episode in the Trump administration, and national security advisor John Bolton has remade the national security apparatus away from cybersecurity. Since Bolton's arrival, the National Security Council has lost homeland security advisor Tom Bossert and Joyce.
