Two top officials with expertise in cybersecurity and information technology are leaving the Securities and Exchange Commission, the agency announced Wednesday.
Chief Information Officer Pamela Dyson is heading to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, where she will serve as CIO and head of the central bank’s technology group.
The current chief technology officer, Charles Riddle, will step into her position to become acting CIO, the SEC said.
Riddle joined the SEC in 2016 from the U.S. Government Publishing Office, where he served as CIO.
Further, Christopher Hetner, the senior advisor to SEC Chairman Jay Clayton for cybersecurity policy, is departing. However, he will stay at the SEC until his replacement is named and moved into place, according to the agency.
Hetner is the agency’s first “cyber czar,” having created the position in 2016. He also served under two former chairs, Mary Jo White and then-Acting Chairman Michael Piwowar.
