New US Cyber-Security Czar has no cyber-security experience

The Bush Administration has finally filled the long-vacant "cyber-security czar" — with a guy who has no experience with cyber-security (though he seems a decent sort).

By all accounts, Beckstrom is neither a cyber-security expert nor a Washington insider. But his private-sector background and published writings emphasize a decentralized approach to managing large organizations.
