Fire the CEO

This idiot could not say, two or three weeks after the incident, whether the data had been encrypted. I'm sure the IT guys had some idea about how to safeguard data, but the responsibility for this lies with management, the head of IT and those above him. If the CEO is so clueless he doesn't know this that long after the hack, he needs to go. First for incompetence and second to begin sending a message to others to take this seriously. The frequency of these losses is a stark reminder that CEO's have learned nothing to date.
