Analysis: Should US cybersecurity be managed by the White House?

Ars Technica has published a well-written analysis of the recent report on US cybersecurity by the Commission on Cyber Security for the 44th Presidency. It examines the question of whether it would be wise for US cybersecurity to be managed by the White House. It concludes that “[w]hile big-picture proposals for reorganizing US cybersecurity efforts tend to grab headlines, it’s likely to be easier to establish consensus around some […] more specific proposals […] such as merging ‘national security’ and ‘homeland security’ advisory functions that bear on network security”, and that “it may make more sense” at this point in time “to focus on these less sexy reforms first”.
