New Cyber Security Czar

Howard A. SchmidtAfter the prior Czar quit claiming that her decision was based upon the Administration's indecision, the Obama Administration has named Howard A. Schmidt, a former Bush cyber security advisor, as the cyber security chief last Tuesday, December 22, 2009. Schmidt, an accomplished cyber security expert, having worked for the Air Force, eBay, and Microsoft, has a lot of experience to offer. This nomination is part of President Obama's campaign promise to make cyber security a priority. Though the economy, national security issues, and healthcare have slowed efforts to address cyber security, hopefully Schmidt will bring beneficial momentum to this priority.
