The chairs of the House Cybersecurity Caucus urged President Barack Obama to appoint a “cyber czar” quickly. In the letter dated last week, Rep. Michael McCaul (R.-TX) and Rep. James Langevin (D.-RI) highlighted Obama’s failure to successfully appoint a candidate to head cybersecurity issues.

The letter pointed to two major issues stressed by the December 2008 Commission on Cybersecurity for the 44th President, namely that a national strategy for cyberspace be created and that the White House appoint someone to coordinate the effort. The chairs praised Obama for completing the first recommendation but called on the president to quickly appoint a “cyber czar.” The letter pointed to the number of cyber attacks recently as evidence that a cyber coordinator was needed immediately to reduce the threat to U.S. national security interests.
