Kenneth Corbin | Feb. 19, 2016
In late push for cybersecurity legacy, Obama gives structure to panel charged with developing a long-term framework for government's role in protecting critical infrastructure.

Of the panel's mission, Obama explains that its "task was not to generate some fat report that collects dust, but in a timely way focuses on what are the long-term challenges that we face, what are the systems that we need to build, and can set a clear sense of direction for the federal government, working in concert with the private sector, state and local actors for the next five years, 10 years, 20 years, so that we can make sure that we get the benefits of the Internet and utilization, and not the dangers and threats."
