    THE DEpartment of Homeland Security is to lose its cyber-security arm to the Whiten House.According to draft legislation obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press, the move follows complaints amoung Republican congress people about what they view as a lack of attention paid to cybersecurity by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

    The Department of Homeland Security tends to be more interested in the protection of the nation's physical structures, such as bridges and buildings than it is about computer systems.
