Hathaway to step down

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 said she took her name out of the running for the permanent post two weeks ago and would resign effective Aug. 24. — DK
