Target, which is recovering from a massive data breach, named high-profile information technology consultant Bob DeRodes as chief information officer on Tuesday.

The discount retailer’s previous CIO resigned in March, several months after the data breach, which included the theft of about 40 million credit and debit card records and 70 million other records of customer details late last year.

Target, the third-largest U.S. retailer, said it was still looking for a chief information security officer and a chief compliance officer.

DeRodes, who starts on May 5, has been a senior information technology adviser for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Secretary of Defense, and the U.S. Department of Justice. He sits on the board of NCR Corp as well as privately held Veracode, which offers cloud-based application security. He worked at First Data Corp from 2008 to 2010 and at Home Depot from 2002 to 2008.
