At a time where cybersecurity is more important than ever before, Neiman Marcus may be exposed to hackers.
The luxury retailer’s very first cybersecurity executive has decided to part ways with the company. After signing on as Neiman Marcus’ chief security information officer in 2014, Sarah Hendrickson has stepped down from her position. Hendrickson, a 20-year security veteran, joined Neiman Marcus’ team shortly after the company’s 2013 data breach which involved 1.1 million credit and debit cards.
Hendrickson’s hire was no doubt a direct response to the release of sensitive consumer data.
Hendrickson joined information technology company S3’s team as its new VP of compliance. Neiman Marcus’ senior VP and CIO, Sarah Miller, will oversee security until a replacement for Hendrickson is found.
