A busy day in CyberSec Space

Declan McCullagh at CNET lays out a history of fed cyber sec since creation of DHS as Obama prepares to report out on the 60 day Cyber Sec review.  McCullagh  notes we have been here before:

If any of this sounds familiar, it should. About a year after President George W. Bush took office, his administration announced a highly-anticipated, 76-page document called the “National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace” (PDF). Few of its bullet points calling for immediate “response” have been enacted; even fewer people remember what they were.

NYTimes report on DOD preparations to defend cyber space.  The Post says not to expect a naming of who will fill the position (Special Assistant to the Pres) expected to report through the NSC chain.
