Arts and music major with no IT or tech schooling, eh?

If true, that's a bit of a red flag I'd think. I see a bit more than wrist slapping about to go down.

I don't think that means anything. Loads of people come out with degrees they never use and go into other fields. I studied history and ended up working as a tech monkey and sales engineer in IT for over a decade. The rest of it's been hospitality. Neither of which my education would have applied to. With the exception of something really educationally specific like medicine or engineering anyone can learn anything on their own and go on to do that.

Their entire business is personal info, these guys should have some of the highest security spending and focus in the industry. They don't.

Other people's personal information they were never given permission to gather, that they sell to other companies, that the people who are the subject of the data must pay to access, and must pay if they want "some" control over that data. As the personal information they are holding is not that of a primary customer, their concern for it's security is secondary. Also, particularly with the current administration, they're unlikely to get into much trouble with the government, maybe a slap on the wrist fine.

As far as the CSO goes, she may very well have worked her way through the ranks of IT, r at least been heavily involved with. A few decades ago it wasn't completely uncommon for people to start working in IT because companies needed IT workers. It's also possible she was part of the "in" management group, and she was put in charge of security because all you need is management skills.
