Re: Advice from the Front Lines
The most important factor that took my attention was "Assess and address staffing". Retaining the good talents has become a challenge age for the CIO, hence he has to focus on it very much.

Advice from the Front Lines
Excellent story Jonathan, the front lines are always the best place from which advice should come.  If I were Bob De Rodes, I would be listening!

Re: Blow Your Own Horn
The big chip-and-pin payment terminal plan illustrates the opportunity -- now is the time to go big on initiatives that wouldn't have been possible before the breach. Think anyone ever thought about those kind of payment terminals before? Such security steps face the "do we have to?" and "why now?" questions. Now security will take center stage -- for a bit.

Blow Your Own Horn
I like Jonathan's emphasis on "visibly" delivering on what the Target CEO and shareholders want. CIOs in all industries need to blow their organizations' horns more -- get better at communications and PR. Critical in this day and age.

Expensive, Massive, Doomed
Security as practicied by large companies today looks way too much like a massively multilevel game of whack-a-mole. So many regs, so many segments, so many stupid end users er, inside threats. There's no way around it, but how sustainable is it? The costs have to be passed along to consumers. At what point do we just surrender and all just get credit cards that expire every month?
