Now hiring: Chief risk officer at SEC following massive data breach
By Jory Heckman
Nearly two years after the Securities and Exchange Committee suffered a major data breach, the financial regulatory agency plans to hire a chief risk officer to help shore up its cyber defenses.
SEC Commissioner Michael Piwowar, speaking at a Data Coalition event on regulation technology, said the idea for the new hire came from Chairman Jay Clayton, who has been leading the SEC’s response to the cyber breach since it was discovered last September.
