Social media firm Meta names Guy Rosen as CISO

Mark Zuckerberg, Chief Executive of the social media company Meta, said in a memo seen by Reuters that he asked Rosen to assume the job and said the move was “another step to elevate this security work in our DNA – and strengthen our leadership and governance on security issues.”

Social media firm Meta, the parent company of Facebook has named the vice president of the company as the chief information security officer (CISO), the first person to fill the role.

Guy Rosen, who most recently led the company’s product safety and integrity efforts and has been at Facebook since 2013, said on Twitter in his new role, he “will continue to oversee and look across the breadth of safety & security risks the people who use our services, our company and industry face.”

This is the first CISO Facebook has had. In October 2021 Facebook was renamed Meta Platforms but it kept the name “Facebook” for its social media app.

Mark Zuckerberg, Chief Executive of the social media company Meta, said in a memo seen by Reuters that he asked Rosen to assume the job and said the move was “another step to elevate this security work in our DNA – and strengthen our leadership and governance on security issues.”

In his expanded role, Rosen “will have overall accountability for safety and security around on-platform abuse as well as the security of our products, infrastructure and company information – focused on both internal and external risks,” Zuckerberg wrote.

Facebook’s previous chief security officer, Alex Stamos, left in 2018.
