#1286172: Capital One Shifts Its CISO to New Role

Description: The bank is searching for a new chief information security officer months after its major data breach.

Capital One Financial Corp. reportedly has moved its current chief information security officer to an advisory role as the bank begins a search for his replacement.

The Wall Street Journal reported this week that Michael Johnson, who had served as the firm's CISO since 2017, will temporarily be replaced by Capital One's CIO Mike Eason. Capital One suffered a data breach of 106 million payment card accounts this year, but didn't learn of the attack until several months after it had occurred.

According to the WSJ report, Capital One employees previously had raised concerns of cybersecurity woes at the firm, including heavy turnover in its security team.
