Tom Kellerman, vice president of security awareness at Core Security Technologies, said it signals an "awakening" in Washington about the need for policy, procedures and presidential involvement in cybersecurity.
But Kellerman, who is part of a commission that is developing cybersecurity recommendations for the Obama administration, said much work remains to be done. "The existing administration has only just begun to pay attention to cybersecurity" as a national security issue, Kellerman said. Over the past few years, there has been a "fundamental ignorance" about what is really needed to address today's threats, he said.
