Addressing security breaches in a retail company IT department:

You have been recently appointed as the CIO for a large retail company. You are charged with addressing data security that has been a major news item in the past six months where the customer sensitive data has been stolen by hackers. Fortunately, your company has not yet been significantly affected. Your CEO is very nervous and has tasked you to propose a plan to assure him that proper processes and policies are in place. At the same time, he has also cautioned that the IT budget cuts are forcing to do more with less. You are asked to provide a short term plan to put in place processes and policies to assure sensitive data confidentiality, integrity, and availability and a long term plan to proactively prevent security breaches in a cost-effective manner. Your proposal is due on April 15th. Make appropriate assumptions on current IT processes and policies in place and state them.  Identify gaps and propose countermeasures.
