Following up from yesterday’s report, key Senate cyber staffer Sameer Bhalotra’s name continues to be tossed around as White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt’s potential deputy coordinator.

Wired’s “Danger Room” features a story on the military’s new U.S. Cyber Command (“CYBERCOM”), stating that after years of planning for the operation, there is “nothing new.” On the defense, Baltimore Business Journal is reporting that the new Command would bring nearly 1,000 jobs to the military’s cyber headquarters at Ft. Meade.

Meanwhile, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen said he is “particularly concerned about cyberspace.”  Addressing the US Air Force Academy’s graduating class of 2010 in a commencement speech, Mullen noted that cyberspace, threats and attacks “will change how we fight.”
