Maiorino joins Target effective June 16 and will be responsible for Target’s information security and technology risk strategy helping to ensure that the company, its guests and team members are protected from internal and external information security threats. He will report to Bob DeRodes, executive vice president and chief information officer.
Maiorino comes to Target from General Motors where he was the company’s chief information security and information technology risk officer. There he was responsible for leading the transformation of the company’s global information security and IT risk organization. Prior to General Motors, he was the chief information security officer at General Electric.
“Having led this critical function at two of the country’s largest companies, Brad is widely recognized as one of the nation’s top leaders in the complex, evolving areas of information security and risk,” said DeRodes. “As an organization, we have made a commitment to our guests and our team that Target will be a retail leader in information security and protection. We believe Brad is the right person to lead that charge.”
In the months following the 2013 data breach at Target, the company detailed significant steps it took to enhance its information security systems and processes while transforming its security and compliance structure and practices. Examples of this included enhancing monitoring, segmentation, logging, and security of accounts and installation of application whitelisting on point-of-sale systems.
"I am looking forward to joining the Target team and helping them continue the progress they have made to be a retail leader in information security and protection,” said Maiorino. “I am confident that the combination of a strong team and the leadership commitment will enable us to achieve that objective.”
Minneapolis-based Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT) serves guests at 1,924 stores – 1,797 in the United States and 127 in Canada – and at Target.com. Since 1946, Target has given 5 percent of its profit through community grants and programs; today, that giving equals more than $4 million a week.
