EUC with HCI: Why It Matters


Gregory Garcia, former vice president of the Information Technology Association of America, is the federal government's new overseer for cyber-security in the United States.

The Department of Homeland Security has picked a new cyber-security czar.

After a yearlong search, the federal government named former ITAA (Information Technology Association of America) vice president Gregory Garcia to be its overseer for cyber-security in the United States.

According to a statement released Sept. 18 by DHS secretary Michael Chertoff, Garcia will brings the "right mix of experience in government and the private sector" to succeed in the role of Assistant Secretary for Cyber Security and Telecommunications.

"He has the expertise to focus resources and activities within the cyber and telecommunications communities in a manner that is consistent with our risk-based approach to homeland security," Chertoff added.
