Top Fed cybersecurity job approved by House
The U.S. House of Representatives has approved a bill to create an assistant secretary for cybersecurity.
The vote last week was 424-4. Now the legislation heads to the Senate.
The position, long a favorite of congressional hawks, will be part of the Department of Homeland Security. Whoever gets the job will be subject to Senate confirmation and will be charged with creating a "national cybersecurity response system."
