Obama announces results of cybercrime review

Microsoft Vice President of Trustworthy Computing, Scott Charney, attended a meeting at the White House earlier this month where President Obama announced the results of a study of U.S. policies and structures for cybersecurity.

For more information about the results of the study, read Charney’s blog entry An Important Step in Advancing Cybersecurity in the Microsoft on the Issues blog or download a PDF copy of the White House Cyberspace Policy Review.
