In a blog post, Deputy Chief Technology Of cer Nick Sinai asked for suggestions on boosting transparency in federal spending, deciding what kinds of government information should be released to the public, and augmenting customer serv- ice for those seeking information or bene ts --- among others. Answers to many of the questions are already part of the open-govern- ment agenda. A personalized interface called MyUSA that streamlines indi- viduals interactions with agencies is in the pipeline, an executive order released in May made open data the default standard for agencies, and changes to the way federal spend- ing data is published were outlined in a June memo from the Of ce of Federal Financial Management. Perhaps more interesting is what the administration has not mentioned. John Wonderlich, policy director at the Sunlight Foundation, said secret government surveillance, national security law, lobbying and money in politics appear to be off the table as open-government topics. "For these issues not to come up, it looks like avoidance from the White House rather than af rmative plan- ning," Wonderlich told FCW. Sinai said 24 of the 26 commitments in the open-government plan have been realized. However, Wonderlich said many were vague or poorly de ned, such as increasing transpar- ency in spending, and creating a more effective and responsive government. "A lot of the commitments could be met by doing almost nothing," he said. --- Adam Mazmanian White House opens up on Open Government 2.0 Sen. Mary Landrieu wants the federal government to build its cybersecurity capabilities in her home state, far from the federal contracting hub inside the Beltway. The Louisiana Democrat --- who is up for re-election in 2014 --- has parochial reasons for making such a pitch, but some experts agree with her. "It s de nitely a good idea to look at dispersed cybersecurity workforce and regional cyber education programs," said Jason Healey, director of the Atlantic Council s Cyber Statecraft Initiative. "It s been too bad that so much of the money has been concentrated in D.C. and especially concentrated in defense-related jobs. It s really sucked a lot of the talent away from other parts of the United States where it s needed." As a member of the Senate Home- land Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Landrieu can push for legislation that includes incentives to develop cybersecurity talent nation- wide and put it to work protecting federal networks and other sensitive installations. "Those jobs can t all be based inside Washington, D.C., and Arlington, Va.," she told the Daily Advertiser in Lafay- ette, La. "Some of those jobs need to be located outside the blast zone. With its technological expertise and the univer- sity here, Acadiana can help safeguard the cyber frontier." The move to decentralize cyber- security is a key component of leg- islation the House passed earlier this year. The Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2013 would fund research into improving cybersecurity and training a cadre of pro- fessionals. Those aspects of the bill are re ected in the Senate s draft cybersecurity legislation. Meanwhile, the Nation- al Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security s National Centers of Academic Excel- lence support two-year information assurance programs at colleges and universities nationwide to build capac- ity in the cybersecurity workforce. The approach addresses an impor- tant need, Healey said. "There s a good reason to get more cybersecurity peo- ple out there and have them as part of a regular workforce," he said. "We need this for the target down the street." --- Adam Mazmanian Landrieu seeks cyber footprint for Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu FLICKR.COM/SENATORLANDRIEU
