SECURE CHANNEL BLOG: President Obama released a report on the state of cybersecurity, as well as a video of federal and civilian officials who worked on the report. The message: pretty much the same thing we've been hearing for years.

President Obama didn't announce the next cybersecurity czar, as speculated he would last Friday. However, the White House did unveil the ineptly named "Cyberspace Policy Review: Assuring a Trusted and Resilient Information and Communications Infrastructure."

Accompanying the report was this video highlighting the need for better, coordinated government and private sector efforts to protect the nation's critical infrastructure. For those of you in the know, I'll spare you the suspence and just say that the video pretty much states the obvious.
