The very idea of a cyber Czar as A figure head for the cyber problem is great!
However, this person must have real power, he or she also needs to be a person who understands the problem with experience.
Example #1 Who better to handle cyber crime then A Ex-Hacker?
If the czar is just some college grad know it all with a degree in some soft technology, all hackers will just take it as A challenge.
When our parents told us not to do something, without backing it up with facts and real understanding.
It only made us want to try it that much more.
#2 If the czar understands softcode/hardcode language and math re-direction aka hacking/code breaking. That would be a big plus.
With that education on the matter he would be better suited for helping government agencies & private sector coprs protect them selves.
Protection does not stop with a firewall. Many 14 year old kids with a small platform reformat hack can bypass a firewall.
You need A czar who has A clear record of botching hacks for some company in the private sector.
#3 You need a czar with A staff of hundreds of Ex-hackers at his call 24/7.
The only true way to combat cyber offenders is with ex-cyber offenders.
I've met MIT grads who are less skilled then some of these 20 year old kids working on A basement direct-net network.
In terms of protecting government networks from cyber abuse.
I suggest creating false directives.
#3 The False directive.
When A hacker of any kind enters A protected matrix realm of be it software/network/program. They have already spent hours if not days understanding the basic ins and outs of whatever it was they planned on attacking.
The more obvious direct route out is usually taken.
If the government was to add virus programs/spyware within those backout protocall the hacker /cyber offender would be locked red handed. Beaten at his or her own game. To catch them you have to hack them back. Which is something the government has issues doing. Though unless they unknowingly get caught with a spyware how will you bypass a spiderweb before they can just back out, light the computer on fire & move on? Which by the way is usualy how it works.
I think all ports for every network should be set to auto port scan everyone who try's to access that network. Passwords/user names are no longer safe.
Any hacker worth his salt can break a password/username if he or she is determined.
Create supreme matrix loaders for all programs/networks/ports.
Create thousands of ally ways millions of container loc's.
Add thousands of fake programs with false information many miss directives.
If these kinds of things are done on a grand scale you will create a huge diversion system. If A kid gets in and sees some data that looks good he'll grab it /scan it and back out before most can catch.
The governments only catches A VERY small percent of attacks.
This is a very fast process now.
A government state outside the US could infiltrate many data center districts within the united states within mini seconds behind spider webs of "millions" of fake Ips /route locations and mac addresses.
With that being said why does the government not do the same thing? Hide your networks on soft-line networks with no outside directive protocall.
Behind millions of sub IPs sub false networks. Direct route lie standards.
The government in A sense needs to act in the mind-set of the cyber offender.
These idea could be used to protect all national interest. From utility to governmental programs.
The person who is decided for this job, needs to be a real person in the media people can look at for safety.
A real figure, not just some person out to make A TON of money off our Tax dollars. He or she must really care for our national security.
Pay him what a High School Principal would be paid these days which Is like 50-65 grand.
He or she must be at the beckon call of the President 24/7.
