New coordinator for US Government Network Security
Brian Krebs of the Washington post broke an interesting story about plans to appoint Rod A Beckstrom as a coordinator to protect federal government networks. For details, see http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/03/19/AR2008031903125.html . Given all the stories about targeted attack and deeply penetrated networks, he will surely have his work cut out.I will be teaching next: Application Security: Securing Web Apps, APIs, and Microservices - SANS San Francisco Winter 2022

Do not a Cybersecurity chief make. There's nothing in his background to show any qualifications for the job. But, hey, we had a horse trainer in charge of FEMA once!
