New Cyber Force Coming

DHS is thinking about setting up a “Cyber Reserve” of computer security experts who could be called upon in the event of a crippling cyber-attack. Reuters is reporting that the idea came from a task force the agency set up to address one of the government’s major vulnerabilities. DHS Deputy Secretary Jane Holl Lute told Reuters they hope to have a working model for a Cyber Reserve within a year. The first members are expected to be drawn from retired government employees now working for private companies.
