Wyden calls on NSA to examine White House cybersecurity following Bezos hack.

"Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) on Friday pressured the National Security Agency (NSA) on efforts to secure personal devices of government employees from foreign hackers and surveillance following news that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos's phone was allegedly hacked by Saudi officials.

Wyden, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, sent a letter to NSA Director Gen. Paul Nakasone asking for an update on a commitment made by former NSA Director Michael Rogers in 2018 that the agency would look into how key government institutions like the White House are guarding against hacking and surveillance operations.

He also singled out senior White House adviser Jared Kushner, who in 2018 reportedly communicated via WhatsApp with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, sometimes referred to as MBS."
