The Objectives of the US Cybersecurity Czar

Howard Schmidt has been e-mailing his many contacts lining up feedback routines and drawing attention to the White House Blog entry on his objectives. His UK equivalent is the Office of Cybersecurity. Just after the e-mail from Howard I received a "security alert", from a bank with whom I have no dealings, inviting me to click on their (oh so slightly different) Get Safe Online logo - as well as on the link to "fix" my account.       

 

The third of the "tips" in the White House blog entry on Howard's appointement is "Know who you are dealing with. It is remarkably simple for online scammers to impersonate a legitimate business ..."

How very true.
