A former Air Force general and Department of Homeland Security official has been appointed as the first federal chief information security officer, the White House announced today.Gregory Touhill will take charge of cybersecurity across the federal government, planning and implementing policy changes to make the nation s critical infrastructure and government agencies more secure.Touhill is the first person to fill the CISO role, which was announced in February as part of President Barack Obama s Cybersecurity National Action Plan and has sat vacant since then.He will play a central role in helping to ensure the right set of policies, strategies, and practices are adopted across agencies and keeping the federal government at the leading edge of 21st century cybersecurity, according to the White House announcement.Touhill s appointment, which was first reported by Reuters, comes as the cybersecurity of the federal government has been increasingly scrutinized.Officials have attributed recent breaches of political organizations like the Democratic National Committee and of state election boards to Russia, and cybersecurity experts have fretted that the American election system is particularly susceptible to hacking.

You had a good innings, as the British like to say, but the days of Cupertino putting a figure on how many iPhones it has managed to flog in the first few days of sales are done.Apple announced the forthcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus yesterday, revealing two new iPhones without a 3.5mm headphone jack but with some light new design elements, as well as water and dust resistance; beefed up storage and battery life; a dual-lens rear camera; a reworked home button; stereo speakers; and the customary CPU upgrade.Pre-orders for the two new iPhones start on Friday, with store availability from September 16.But, unlike in previous new iPhone release cycles, come Monday Apple won t be saying how many handsets it s shifted.The company tells Reuters it is ending the traditional first weekend glimpse of iPhone sales because there is no point in releasing a figure that merely measures its in ability to fulfill demand.Although of course it would say that.

When there s nothing on TV, and it s raining outside, and you re bored of your toys, every kid always has one reliable way to entertain themselves: pretend the floor is lava and do anything you can to cross a room without stepping on it.It used to require a healthy imagination, until someone turned the idea into a video game.Hot Lava, coming soon to the Steam store, takes the traditional first person shooter in a new direction.Instead of shooting your way through a level, you need to carefully navigate between obstacles, like coffee tables, sofas, and other furniture, that are all precariously floating atop a lava flow.Playback isn't supported on this device.From the looks of it, Hot Lava will require lightning fast reflexes, both when it comes to sticking your landings, but also when it comes to hitting the quick-save key so you re not constantly restarting from the beginning every time you land in the lava.
