White House Names Members of Cybersecurity Commission

The White House has named the CEO of Mastercard and the former director of the National Security Agency to a special commission dedicated to bolstering the nation’s cybersecurity defenses. The commission is part of the Obama administration’s $19 billion budget to combat hackers, established by a February executive order after a string of high-profile cyberattacks in the private sector and the embarrassing hack of the Office of Personnel Management put the nation’s cyber defenses in the spotlight.
