It has been two weeks since the 60-Day White House Cybersecurity Review, and President Barack Obama has yet to name the new cyber czar.

After the 60-Day review came outl most believed Melissa Hathaway, the acting senior director of cyberspace for the National Security and Homeland Security Councils and leader of the Cyberspace Policy Review, would receive the position. Her Wikipedia Page even states, “Ms. Hathaway is expected to be offered the post of National Cyber Advisor.”

However, an insider from Reuters Online Magazine said Melissa Hathaway is not a contender for the position. Instead, the anonymous source stated that Scott Charney, the VP of Microsoft’s Trustworthy Computing Group and former head of PricewaterhouseCooper“™s cyber crime division and Paul Kurtz, leader of Obama“™s cybersecurity transition team and partner at Good Harbor Consulting are the top candidates for the title of cyber czar.

The insider also mentioned distinguished engineer at Sun Microsystems Laboratories Susan Landau, former President Bill Clinton Defense Secretary Frank Kramer, and former NSA and FBI employee Maureen Baginski as prospects for the position.
