Still, it led to a closure of federal buildings, and at least one disgusted congressman. Web Manager Julia Ziegler joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with a storm review, and to share some of your comments.

Col. Jeff Schilling (Ret.), Chief Security Officer, FireHost

President Barack Obama held the first White House Cybersecurity Summit last week and issued an Executive Order with hopes of fostering a more open exchange between government and the private sector. Jeff Schilling is the chief security officer for FireHost. He once directed the global Security Operations Center under U.S. Army Cyber Command and has seen the challenges from both sides. On the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, he pointed out cybersecurity was only one of the topics the glitterati actually discussed.
