Established by Executive Order 13231, NIAC will make recommendations
regarding the security of the cyber and information systems of the
States' national security and economic critical infrastructures. The
Committee will also examine ways that partnerships between the public
private sectors can be enhanced to improve cyber security. 

Let's break down this advisory board by title...

1 Chairman/President/CEO 
8 Chairman/CEO 
2 President/CEO 
3 Chairman 
1 Vice Chairman 
2 CEO 
1 COO 
1 President 
1 Executive Vice President
1 Governor 
1 Mayor  
1 Police Comissioner
1 Chief of Police

That's a whole bunch of people that likely get their e-mail printed and
handed to them.

Now, let's see if any of them have an interesting track record with

Interesting, searching for Inter-Con Security Systems (since that name
didnt ring a bell), the first hit i get is:

second hit is interesting:

another article calls them "the largest privately held security services
firm in the world" 

he is a UnitedWay board member...

and 30 hits into google, all i can see is that they provide guards for
buildings and have no easy to find web page. 

> Maynard G. Webb, CEO, e-Bay

> William F. Owens, Governor of Colorado 
> Jorge Santini, Mayor of San Juan Puerto Rico 

These two are "security experts"?

> Karen Katen, President, Pfizer Global Pharmaceuticals and Executive Vice
> President, Pfizer Inc.

All in all, I really don't get a warm fuzzy when thinking these people
are going to help figure out how to protect our infrastructure.
