Melissa Hathaway, acting senior director for cyberspace for the National Security and Homeland Security council, announced Monday that she is stepping down, citing personal reasons, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal. Hathaway was tasked with leading a 60-day cyberspace policy review, the results of which were presented by President Obama in May. He announced that he would soon appoint a permanent cybersecurity coordinator. Hathaway said she took her name out of the running for the permanent post two weeks ago and would resign effective Aug. 24. — DK
