Janet Napolitano released an announcement today as part of celebrating Information Security Awareness Month that the Department of Homeland Security has been given permission to hire up to 1000 information security professionals. However, there was no mention of filling the long awaited slot for the Information Security Czar, and given the heat that the administration is taking on the number of Czar’s, it may well be that even if the spot is filled it will be renamed as a way of avoiding the controversy associated with that title.
