With hackers from around the world targeting the United States, the country definitely needs a boost in its cybersecurity, and with that being the case, President Mr. Barrack Obama has decided to appoint new folks to a team designed to stop hackers in their tracks.

This team will be home to several individuals including Peter Lee, CVP, Microsoft Research. When it comes down to helping the United States stand firm in the realm of an increasing digital world, strong cybersecurity measures are required all the way.

For those who are in the dark, Peter Lee joined the Microsoft team back in 2010. Before that, he worked at Carnegie Mellon University as the Professor and Head of the Computer Science Department, so clearly this man is up to the task as one of the key individuals in strengthening the United States cyber world.

The following is a list with all the members of this new team created by the President from the White House’s website:

  Annie I. Antón – Member, Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity

  Ajay Banga – Member, Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity

  Steven Chabinsky – Member, Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity

  Patrick Gallagher – Member, Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity

  Herbert Lin – Member, Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity

  Heather Murren – Member, Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity

  Joe Sullivan – Member, Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity

  Maggie Wilderotter – Member, Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity

The team is expected to get to work soon on new security plans for the future, and then bring those plans to the President for approval. We expect Peter Lee, as a Microsoft man, to bring is best to the team and much of what he has learned from Microsoft when it comes down to security and how best to stop threats dead in their tracks.
