Director of U.S. Cyber Attack Team Resigns

The head of a U.S. agency that helps respond to cyber attacks resigned suddenly after several high-profile attacks on government computer systems but the Department of Homeland Security declined to comment on the reason. Randy Vickers resigned as director of the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team, according to an email from Roberta Stempfley, acting assistant secretary for cyber security and communications at Homeland Security, which was sent to some employees.
