Microsoft's security guru and later advisor to the whitehouse was just appinted by Pres Obama to the white house post as cybersecurity czar.
Have know Howard for years. He is passionate and great at pulling together expert teams to address all issues. He was chair of McAfee's cybercrime advisory board. I was a member of that board for its first year.
Last he and I were together we were addressing Mrs. Mubarack in Cairo on cybersecurity/safety issues.
Howard understands Washington and what it will take to tackle this important topic.
Looking forward to working with him again.
The timing of the Citibank and other large data breaches hitting the same day points out how important this role is. It's been empty too long.
