Re: "Industry executives and analysts say the cybersecurity market will be a fast-growing area in coming years and could generate more than $10 billion in contracts by 2013".

Really, really coo.......l; but, what about the "contracts" to fix the world's financial and economic woes; and, how many $billions will these be!!!

Excellent news. The country's businesses are suffering and there are massive layoffs in effect nationwide. It makes perfect sense to create yet another empty office title, reward some campaign donor with a nice salary and let them staff the entire new branch accordingly.

No worries though, it's not like it's *real* money. You can always just print more- what's the harm?

But beyond my cynical take on made up offices like this, it would have to be filled by someone NOT in the computer IT industry or else will appear biased / paid off and completely useless/powerless to do anything.
