Our human brains seem to usually want to explain past events, and we sometimes take some circuitous routes to get to some explanations. Hence, tragic events are expalined afterward in stories that will vary depending on the explainers own biases and background. It's not often easy to know the truth of the matter other than what we might consider the best evidence or data available.

May have to check that book out - interesting aspect on how people respond to the unexpected (which is what accidents/murders/strange events are).

@Broadway it's rather like marketing-speech -- something that sounds like it reflects a huge benefit without promising real specifics you can look for.

@kq4ym good point! You're right that it really doesn't mean that much because the CDO's job is managing or making sure someone is managing the data. Obviously then the organization can claim to manging better than a company that doesn't have such a role in place. But -- and tht just may be why the Met let the one it hired go -- that's not quite the same as demonstrating ROI in tangible terms.

That statement is so self-evident that it's ridiculous to even be written without more specifics to follow --- agreed. Then again, some evidence that CDOs are so effective and important in that exposition would be equally helpful.

Yes, thosse tasks should probably be included in the responsibilites. I'm wondering though about the report advising "Agencies with a CDO are significantly more likely to be successfully managing big data," and just what it may mean to be "successfully managing." Like the definitions need of being more precise, the tasks for the federal government CDO should also be defined well for the particular agency employer.

A CDO should also be responsible for setting up awareness training on security, risk managment, thrests and data gaps and bulding teams to help one another out when an incident occurs. the teams should have tools to catch the would-be hackers before they launch attacks against big data. In short, s good awareness training can change a participant's indifferent attitude toward security and big data to that of proactive attitude.

@jmeyerson the original publication date was 1984 I could give you the links that show that, but then the comment wouldn't go through. I know some of the things in the book were changed in later editions, but as the section on accidents begins with the infamous account of Kitty Genovese's murder, I'd think that is part of the original text.

@Jim That's quite a story! You never know how you end up connected to somoene you help. But it also points out how most people just don't think about what they can do to help in those situations. As you say, the person in the accident may even have a phone but be too much in shock to think about using it to get help.
