US to create cyber security coordinator
Washington: US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton announced that a new coordinator for cyber security will be created at the State Department to help ensure classified material remains protected.
The new post was being created as part of a larger plan to reform the department and US diplomacy to make it more streamlined, effective, and faster at responding to international crises and developments, Hillary said on Wednesday.
Hillary’s announcement about the new plans was contained in the Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review at a townhall-style meeting with State Department employees.
In a separate process, the US government has launched a comprehensive review on the safety of secret documents and diplomatic correspondence since WikiLeaks began publishing classified State Department documents on November 28.
The documents were believed to have been leaked to the website by a government employee.
