" What is the best low-cost IT initiative that an enterprise can implement today?"
This isn't a real question, unless you're going to leave the term "initiative" to the responder.  If so, the least expensive thing I can think of that's IT related might be buying a $3 USB thumbdrive at a gas station somewhere.

" What are the benefits of this initiative?"
I'd have a thumb drive cheap.

" What resources will be necessary to deploy this initiative?"
$3 and a gas station.

wow, extremely vague question and not really a question.  I mean what if they already have a thumb drive, why buy another.

While I cannot say low-cost, but MFA can have huge returns on investment.

what industry are we in as well?

Hard to gauge without a starting point.  For example, how do you communicate and disseminate information now.  Sharepoint might be a good start?
