Panetta Assigns New Pentagon Cyber Chief

The Defense Department announced a new top official on Tuesday to oversee its cyber programs.

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta appointed Eric Rosenbach, a former Senate staffer and private security consultant, as deputy assistant secretary of defense for cyber policy in the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Global Strategic Affairs.

Rosenbach will oversee DOD efforts to develop and implement cyber-related policies, strategies, and plans. Over the summer, Robert Butler ended his two-year stint in the job.

Rosenbach previously worked for D.C.-based Good Harbor Consulting, as well as national security advisor for Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., and as a staff member on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

On Tuesday, members of the House Intelligence Committee called on government officials to do more to combat cyberthreats, especially alleged spying by China.
