The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Core Management Team (CMT) is the organizational backbone for the DOJ response to an actual or suspected data breach involving PII, company or business identifiable information, significant breaches of NSI and significant cybersecurity incidents. The CMT is the primary advisor to the Attorney General in making determinations regarding breach notification.
