The Energy Department’s new chief information officer recently said federal agencies should have a prevent-recover-respond mindset in responding to cyber attacks, AOL Government reports.

Robert Brese said at the Government Technology Research Alliance conference Sunday that many agencies still have an overly defensive mindset, which he termed as a prevent-recover strategy.

The response part of his proposed strategy would pose risks to those who attack federal networks, he said.

Brese added there should be a system of cyber interns and compared the idea to medical residency programs, where interns typically gain between five and seven years of experience before practicing.

According to Wyatt Kash’s report, he also spoke about the importance of including information technology products in risk management processes and identifying different systems agencies need in case of emergencies.

Brese recently was appointed DOE’s permanent CIO after serving on an interim basis since April.
