President Barack Obama has appointed Lisa Hook, President and CEO of Neustar, a leader in providing carriers and enterprises with solutions for sending calls, messages and content across networks worldwide, to the National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC).

The NSTAC is a group of up to 30 industry CEOs from major telecommunications companies, network service providers, information technology, finance and aerospace companies. The NSTAC provides the President with critical, collaborative advice and expertise as well as robust reviews and recommendations regarding national security, cybersecurity and emergency preparedness. The NSTAC's goal is to develop recommendations to the President to assure vital telecommunications links through any event or crisis and to help the U.S. Government maintain a reliable, secure, and resilient national communications posture.

"I'm honored to have been selected to join the President's National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee," said Hook, "and I look forward to working with my colleagues to provide the President with critical advice aimed at ensuring the reliability, preparedness and security of our increasingly complex Internet and telecommunications infrastructure."

Hook added, "Neustar's work ensuring that billions of messages, voice calls and Internet queries are properly and securely routed each day makes us a natural fit for the President's National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee, and I am honored to serve."

With more than 25 years of executive experience spanning the communications, media, and entertainment industries, Hook has held senior leadership positions at a number of Fortune 500 companies, including President of AOL Broadband and AOL Anywhere; Chief Operating Officer of Time Warner Telecommunications (a division of Time Warner, Inc.); and chief counsel of Viacom Cable. Early in her career, Ms. Hook served as a senior legal advisor at the Federal Communications Commission.
