U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton announced on Wednesday that a new coordinator for cyber security will be created at the State Department to help ensure classified material remains protected.

The new post was being created as part of a larger plan to reform the department and U.S. diplomacy to make it more streamlined, effective, and faster at responding to international crises and developments, Ms. Clinton said.

Ms. Clinton’s announcement about the new plans was contained in the Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review at a townhall-style meeting with State Department employees.

In a separate process, the U.S. government has launched a comprehensive review on the safety of secret documents and diplomatic correspondence since WikiLeaks began publishing classified State Department documents from November 28.
