Twitter Inc. has announced that its Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is leaving the firm in the coming weeks, as well as its head of security.
The reorganisation comes after Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey stepped down as CEO in November, transferring the reins to top deputy Parag Agrawal, who has subsequently restructured the company’s leadership structure.
The departures were not stated to be voluntary by Twitter.
Following a security breach of Twitter that allowed hackers to tweet from verified accounts for notable individuals such as billionaire Bill Gates and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Peiter Zatko, also known as “Mudge,” was named head of security in 2020.
Zatko’s departure and Rinki Sethi’s upcoming departure as CISO were first reported by the New York Times on Friday.
