The U.S. Just Got Its First Federal Chief Information Security Officer

Summary

President Obama just named Brigadier General Gregory J. Touhill as the nation's first Chief Information Security Officer. This follows last February's announcement of a Cybersecurity National Action Plan (CNAP), which aims to bring the entire Federal government's IT infrastructure to the 21st century. This post will examine what the CISO is tasked with, and how the CNAP has the potential to stimulate, and drive innovation in, the private sector.
