The Securities and Exchange Commission announced Thursday that Pamela Dyson has been named the SEC’s Deputy Chief Information Officer, a newly created position, to help the agency further modernize its outdated technology.
Dyson has filled a number of key roles in the agency’s Office of Information Technology (OIT) since joining the SEC in November 2010. In her new role as deputy director she will coordinate closely with the agency’s divisions and offices to maintain an innovative, secure and efficient technology infrastructure, the SEC says.
“Pam is an outstanding professional with a valuable combination of technical knowledge and leadership experience,” said Thomas A. Bayer, the SEC’s chief information officer, in a statement. “Her efforts to increase the efficiency of OIT operations have already made a significant impact on the agency, and we’re pleased to welcome her to this new position.”
