Target CIO resigns… 80 days after breach is exposed

So it took around 80 days for the axe to fall at Target.

I’m hearing a lot of chatter that Target treats their IT department as a cost center, so its interesting how/if this huge security breach, and its repercussions (specially legal), will change DM’s view on IT and specially software security.
