President Obama on Wednesday briefly dropped by and addressed a meeting 
at which industry figures were being updated on U.S. cybersecurity 
efforts, acknowledging more progress was needed on the issue but blaming 
George W. Bush administration efforts as inadequate.

The meeting was led by White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard 
Schmidt, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Commerce 
Secretary Gary Locke and was attended "by an array of cybersecurity 
stakeholders from across the country," a statement from the White House 

One of the stakeholders, Larry Clinton, president of the Internet 
Security Alliance, told The Washington Times that while he credits the 
administration for some improvements since its cybersecurity policy was 
rolled out more than a year ago, there was disappointment about the 
speed of progress.

"We want them to substantially pick up the pace," he said of the 
Internet Security Alliance, an industry-backed nonprofit that advocates 
market-based cybersecurity practices.
