White House Names First Cyber Security Chief

The White House has named retired U.S. Air Force general Gregory Touhill as the first Cyber Security Chief. I'm not saying we would drop bombs on hackers but this guy has the know-how and experience so I wouldn't mess around with him. wink

Gregory Touhill's job will be to protect government networks and critical infrastructure from cyber threats as federal chief information security officer, according to a statement. The Obama administration has made bolstering federal cyber security a top priority of the president's last year in office. The issue has gained more attention due to high-profile breaches in recent years against the government and private sector.
