Current status: Reading the just-released national cyber strategy document by the White House, and rereading executive order 13800, which it depends on. So far, lots of heat and very little light. It’s very clear that whoever is advising the president on how this stuff works does not have a clue about how any of this works, which means that any good intentions which may be present will be canceled by the fact that everyone involved is operating in the dark. I have no idea who could possibly be advising on this, because as of May 15 of this year we no longer have a cyber security coordinator. If it’s Rudy Giuliani we are well and truly fucked in this arena.
