Christopher Painter, a member of the cyber review task force appointed by President Obama for a “clean slate” review of our technology and security appeared before the Los Angeles chapter of the Information Systems Security Association.
I was riveted by his revelations about the process of the task force to prepare and deliver a report to President Obama within 60 days, their assignment. The report, now a matter of public record as part of the President’s “transparency initiative, is the basis for the announcement on May 29th that technology department will be created in the White House and that the President will personally appoint a Cybersecurity Coordinator.
Another astounding fact is that President Obama’s comments on May 29th were the first speech by any national leader on the subject of cyber security.
