US cyberspace head says security needs team effort

The leader of a major US government review of cyber security told computer defense professionals on Wednesday that protecting the country online would require their efforts.

A 60-day review of the US communications and information infrastructure identifies 250 “needs, tasks, and recommendations,” said Melissa Hathaway, the acting head of cyberspace for the US national and homeland security councils.

The report on the country’s communications and information infrastructure was completed on April 17 and is now on President Barack Obama’s desk for review. “When the report is made public you will see there is a lot of work for us to do together,” Hathaway told an audience of computer security experts in San Francisco.
