Forbes.com published the first in a three part series on “why CEO’s and marketers need to wake up to the cyber security storm that is approaching.” Writer Kimberly Whitler says she’s been interested in the topic of marketing’s role in data breaches “for some time.” As such, she interviewed Holly Rollo, the CMO of RSA, the Security Division of ERC who talked about the what, why and how of security incidents.
