Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani will consult for the Trump administration on cybersecurity issues, according to a post on Thursday from the President-elect’s transition team.

The transition team also announced the President-elect plans to potentially hold regular meetings with technology companies about cybersecurity issues. In an appearance on Fox & Friends, Giuliani said he would help coordinate these talks.

Currently, details on the initiative are still being set. As The Verge notes, the transition team said it could include companies who’ve been hit by security vulnerabilities, while Giuliani said the group would include security groups. Via the transition team’s statement:

The President-elect’s intent is to obtain experiential and anecdotal information from each executive on challenges faced by his/her company, how the company met the challenges, approaches which were productive or successful, and those which were not. The attendees may or may not change from session to session, but the specific agenda subjects will likely change because of the rapidly evolving field of cyber security, and frequent developments, both positive and negative. No consensus advice or recommendations resulting from group deliberations or interaction is expected or will be solicited.

As President-elect Trump’s transition team prepares to enter the White House, the announcement puts a current cap on speculation over Giuliani’s role within in the administration. Following the election, Giuliani was in contention to be nominated for secretary of state before former ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson was tabbed. In the meantime, Giuliani has kept a presence in the technology sphere, making an appearance at CES 2017 to talk about cybersecurity issues.
