President Obama in the Situation Room   (Source: Pete Souza/White House)
Meeting to focus on rebuffing Chinese national security threat, as well as other issues

There's been quite a bit of back-and-forth noise between President Obama's staff and top officials in the Chinese government regarding cybersecurity.  The U.S. in the midst of a major push to upgrade its cyberoffensive and defensive capabilities; plus the President just signed a new executive order encouraging companies to voluntarily share information on security threats with the government.

In order to try to court top business leaders to cooperate with the new information sharing initiative, President Obama will meet today in The White House Situation Room with top CEOs in the tech industry to discuss "how the government and private sector can best work together to improve the nation’s cybersecurity."

A guest list for the closed door event was not announced in advance.  Details on the meeting and who attended should trickle out by tomorrow.
 
Congress is currently debating cybersecurity legislation, but the efforts have stalled amid the larger fiscal sequestration debate.

Nothing says "arrogance" as leaning back in a chair.
