US President-elect Donald Trump has announced he will set up a team to guide the government on how to ward off cyberattacks within 90 days of taking office, reports Reuters. He said this soon after a "constructive" meeting with members of US intelligence agencies on January 6 to discuss the agencies' report on last year's cyberattacks ahead of the US presidential election.

Trump is scheduled to take office on January 20.
