Howard Schmidt, a former security official at eBay and Microsoft, will be named the White House cybersecurity coordinator on Tuesday. The announcement follows a six-month search that kicked off when President Obama created the post in May. Schmidt, currently the president of nonprofit computer-security organization the Information Security Forum, has previously worked at the White House, the FBI, and the Air Force. His responsibilities will include setting computer-security policy and recommending cybersecurity budgets. He will also have "regular access to the president."
