Cyber Security Review Release Is Imminent

The Obama administration will release its plans for a major overhaul of the nation’s cyber security policies in the coming days, a senior administration official said today.

Speaking to intelligence industry professionals in McLean, VA, Melissa Hathaway, tasked by the White House with a 60-day review of the nation’s cybersecurity infrastructure, said that the H1N1 flu response had delayed the roll-out.

In her speech, Hathaway did not say much about the administration’s policy changes, although published reporters indicate that Obama plans to create a powerful national cybersecurity directorate that would work through the Department of Homeland Security, establish a national cybersecurity recovery plan and resolve longstanding conflicts between agencies.
