Businesses should make project managers accountable for the security of project technology, says US CTO

“For an outside attacker gaining access to protected resources, ultimately the board room is going to be held accountable,” Brazil said. “They will want to push responsibility down through [their] organizations to the people requesting change [to technologies or systems]. That person should be held accountable and responsible for the security failures of those systems in the same way that they would be held responsible for the financial failure of a project.”
