Neustar President Lisa Hook named to Obama's National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee

Lisa Hook, President and CEO of Neustar, has become the latest member of President Barack Obama's National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC).

Consisting of a group of up to 30 CEOs from telecom service providers, IT, finance and aerospace companies, 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 organization is focused on developing recommendations to give to the president that it says will assure the survivability of telecommunications links through any natural disaster or crisis.

Neustar and Hook are a good fit for NSTAC. Hook, who oversees a company that provides services such as phone numbers and Domain Name Service (DNS), has over 25 years of experience in not only telecom, but also the media and entertainment industries. Prior to her role at Neustar, Hook served in a number of high level roles, including President of AOL Broadband and AOL Anywhere and COO of Time Warner Telecommunications.
