U.S. presidential commission issues recommendations on cyber security

Dec 2 (Reuters) - The U.S. government and the private sector must cooperate to improve the security of digital networks, a U.S. presidential commission on cyber security recommended in a wide-ranging report issued on Friday.

The 100-page report by the commission created by President Barack Obama earlier this year also recommended that the president and the U.S. Congress accelerate the pace at which technology is updated in the federal sector and that the president appoint an ambassador for cyber security for efforts abroad.
