UPDATE: White House Cyber Meeting Today
From the National Journal’s Congress Daily:
The White House is expected to hold a meeting today to assess the Obama administration’s progress on cybersecurity reforms.
The meeting is intended to evaluate where the administration stands just more than a year since completion of a major cybersecurity policy review, said Rand Beers, an undersecretary at the Homeland Security Department. Beers declined to answer further questions about the meeting.
Last year’s review was led by Melissa Hathaway, then the cybersecurity director. But Hathaway, who has since left government service, said in an e-mail she had not been invited to today’s meeting. The session is expected to be led by Howard Schmidt, appointed cybersecurity coordinator last year.
Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Reid expects to hold a meeting today of key chairmen to merge competing cybersecurity bills in the chamber, a Reid spokeswoman said.
