Former White House cyber-security czar Richard Clarke ripped his former employer Tuesday, saying that the government is doing an unacceptable job of helping the private sector lock down the nation's critical infrastructure.

    Speaking at a press conference called to announce a new private alliance of technology companies concerned with security, Clarke took the Department of Homeland Security and other government agencies to task for failing to act quickly on the National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace.

    "The reorganization of security into DHS has, at least in the short term, made things worse," said Clarke, who is now chairman of Good Harbor Consulting LLC, a firm based in Arlington, Va., that counsels companies on security and other issues. "The government is less capable now of securing its network than it was a year ago. This doesn't have to go on."
