As the Department of Homeland Security prepares to name a leader for its National Cyber Security Division, observers in Washington and the private sector say DHS' hiring process has set up the new NCSD head to fail.

    "It's been the most closed process I've ever seen," said Harris Miller, president of the Information Technology Association of America, in Arlington, Va. "They asked for names, and we gave them some, but there's been no rebound. It's not clear how much respect security has in this administration."

    From the time DHS Secretary Tom Ridge announced the creation of the NCSD in June, the security community has been buzzing with speculation about who would be picked to lead the division. DHS officials asked industry leaders to recommend candidates and promised to ask for feedback as they continued to narrow the pool. Many people praised the department for seeking outside input.
