While the Obama administration adds the finishing touches to a 60-day review of federal cybersecurity policy, due at the end of April, a recent bill proposal in the Senate aims to preempt the creation of a Cybersecurity Advisor post within the Executive Office of the President.

The National Security Council and Homeland Security Council are expected to report the results of a 60-day review of national cybersecurity within the government by the end of this month.

The review itself will develop what will eventually become the framework expected to ensure U.S. cyber security is integrated, resourced, and coordinated with Congress and the private sector. While there have been several attempts in the past to move cyber security to a large scale, ego and politics have always prevented inter-agency cooperation. (Tech Herald)
