How should the project manager plan to meet these requirements

Wed Apr 21, 2021 4:39 pm

A project manager needs to ensure that all data security requirements are covered during a data warehouse development project’s execution phase. Each of the databases created during different project phases will have a specific data security policy to comply with governmental data security laws.

How should the project manager plan to meet these requirements?

A. Plan a database development specification, then regularly check to ensure the developer aligns with the specification.

B. Arrange for review of the data security status on a quarterly basis, and recommend remedial steps if noncompliance is found.

C. Tell the database developer to submit documentation of data security items and the steps they take to correct items that do not meet specifications.

D. Add a quality assurance specialist resource to the project team, who will be responsible for monitoring the data security quality of the project.

Given answer is B and my answer is A. The explanation mentions :
A) No - This is premature and will most likely take longer than attempting to rectify the situation.
B) Yes - A Project Manager also has the ability to be a coach. Servant Leadership encourages listening and serving, and therefore it may be possible to compromise with the team member.

I think that checking on quarterly basis for security compliance is less secure. Checking should be done more frequently .Also A ensures that issues are found early when doing a frequent check rather than waiting for quarterly review to comes after 3 months .

Hi Pallav,

I think this is tricky one, I was also inclined for A or D.
B is not my obvious choice as it mentioned Qtrly review, and I am not sure if that frequency is good, no information on duration of project or releases is mentioned in question, Qtrly maybe not suitable in case releases are happening every month or every 2 weeks,
Option B also does not align with Servant Leadership concept

kindly write to support@izenbridge and provide link to this thread asking them to rectify
