A microchip with a lock on it.
On Friday, Missouri’s Chief Information Security Officer Stephen Meyer stepped down to accept a new position as a consulting security architect for World Wide Technology.

Meyer announced the news in a LinkedIn post, saying, “I’m leaving an organization I’ve been a part of for almost 21 years. Being a member of some amazing teams has allowed me to grow and learn among people that I still continue to call friends.”

On Monday, Meyer started 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 enhancements to existing infrastructures and working with the SLED engineering team in designing, developing and proposing enterprise-wide solutions.

Meyer’s previous experience includes working as a computer information technologist in the Missouri Department of Economic Development in 2001 and serving as a digital forensic investigator for the state attorney general’s office in 2004.

In 2009 he became the lead analyst for the state’s security operations center and was appointed state CISO in 2018.

As CISO, Meyer oversaw daily operations, including incident response planning, metrics, cloud security, professional development, security policy and procedures and vendor negotiations.
