Submission + - Cyber Czar Has Tended Her Resignation (wsj.com)

squiggly12 writes: The acting "cyber czar" has tendered her resignation due to personal reasons. Should we appoint another one?

The White House's acting cybersecurity czar announced her resignation Monday, in a setback to the Obama administration's efforts to better protect the computer networks critical to national security and the global economy.

Ms. Hathaway had initially been considered a leading contender to fill the cyber post permanently. She lost favor with the president's economic team after she said it should consider options for regulating some private-sector entities to ensure they secure their networks, said cybersecurity specialists familiar with the discussions. Being a holdover from the Bush administration didn't help either, they said.
