Comodo CEO Melih Abdulhayoglu Offers Advice for Howard Schmidt, the Newly Appointed White House Cybersecurity Coordinator

Jersey City, NJ, December 29, 2009 - The White House recently announced President Barack Obama’s choice for the new position of White House Cybersecurity Coordinator, Howard Schmidt. Mr. Schmidt brings over 40 years of experience in government, business and law enforcement and is a recognized authority on Cybersecurity. His introductory remarks about the new position, background and approach are available at Comodo.TV, along with a wide range of other video programs focused on Internet trust and security.

As part of his Internet Security Insider video blog series, Comodo CEO Melih Abdulhayoglu offered his unique, insider viewpoint about this position at the time President Obama announced its creation. In Advice for America’s Internet Czar, Abdulhayoglu urges the government’s cyber-leadership to look beyond traditional perimeter security of cyber-infrastructure to solve the problem of millions of under-protected endpoints currently being exploited – creating both commercial and national security risk.
