Kevin Coleman, formerly chief strategist atÂ Netscape and previously aÂ management consultant at Deloitte, has called onÂ organizations to form a cyber incident response team for on-demand action on data breaches.
Coleman wrote in a commentary for FedscoopÂ senior executives within organizations must also begin to turn their focus on data breach response strategies in order to mitigate theÂ costs andÂ consequences of these incidents.
Coleman saysÂ legal, communications, public relations, operations, information technology and finance departments play major roles inÂ work to addressÂ cyber incidents and data breaches.
“Experienced professional program and project managers are beginning to be put in place to manage the complexity of these and related initiatives, and hopefully reduce the overall risk,” he said.
“The biggest challenge we all face at this point is the limited number of project managers who have actual experience dealing with the challenges of a cyber incident or data breach,” Coleman added.
