US based retailer, JCPenney, has announced Debora Plunkett, former senior advisor to the director of the US National Security Agency (NSA), to its board of directors. Plunkett has a deep understanding of today's data-driven and interconnected world with an experience in cybersecurity, information assurance and innovation in information security. 
"Debora has a strong background in information management and technology, and has been trusted by some of the nation's top leaders to deliver robust security solutions and policies for the U.S. government. Her distinguished background brings tremendous value to our board as JCPenney continues on a path to becoming a world-class omnichannel retailer," said Marvin R Ellison, chairman and CEO of JCPenney.
Most recently, Plunkett has served as a professor at University of Maryland University College teaching graduate-level cybersecurity courses. She also provides consultation on cybersecurity, information assurance and management topics at her firm, Plunkett Associates LLC. Prior to these positions, she has also served as director for the Office of Transnational Threats at the National Security Council of The White House. She currently serves as a strategic advisory board member for the International Consortium for Minority Cybersecurity Professionals and an advisory board member for CyberMaryland.
The company also declared that Colleen Barrett, President Emeritus of Southwest Airlines Co., will retire from the board when her term concludes on May 19, 2017, at the Company's Annual Meeting of Stockholders. Barrett joined the JCPenney board in 2004 and currently chairs the corporate governance committee.(PA)
