Missouri chief information security officer Stephen Meyer on Friday resigned to take a new position as a consulting architect in security for World Wide Technology.
Meyer broke the news in a LinkedIn post, stating, “I am leaving an organization that I have been a part of for almost 21 years. Being a member of amazing teams has allowed me to grow and learn among people that I continue to call friends.
On Monday, Meyer began working with World Wide Technology in their state and local government and education (SLED) division.
In his new role, Meyer will be responsible for integrating new architectural improvements to existing infrastructure and working with the SLED engineering team to design, develop and deliver enterprise-wide solutions.
Meyer’s previous experience includes working as a computer technologist with the Missouri Department of Economic Development in 2001 and as a digital forensics investigator for the state attorney general’s office in 2004.
In 2009, he became the Senior Analyst of the State Security Operations Center and was appointed State CISO in 2018.
As CISO, Meyer oversaw day-to-day operations including incident response planning, metrics, cloud security, professional development, security policy and procedures, and vendor negotiations.
