Obama Administration Plans to Open Center to Fight Cyberattacks - NYTimes.com

Disconcerting

"The new center would essentially put greater control of assessments into the hands of the director of national intelligence, James R. Clapper Jr. While there are a number of federal cybercenters in operation, the Department of Homeland Security, which has primary responsibility for the defense of American domestic networks, has often been at odds with the National Security Agency, the military’s United States Cyber Command and other branches of the government responsible for assessing or reacting to cyberattacks.

Mr. Obama is also attempting to press companies and the government to cooperate more fully in sharing information on cyberattacks. He is scheduled to travel to Stanford University on Friday to sign an executive order easing the way for American companies to share data with the government."
