Microsoft Appoints a New CISO as Part of a Significant Security Reorganization


Igor Tsyganskiy, a new recruit with experience as CTO and President at asset management behemoth Bridgewater Associates, has been appointed as Microsoft’s Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) following a covert leadership transition at the software giant.

The chief information security officer (CISO) and deputy CISO were removed by Microsoft boss Charlie Bell. Tsyganskiy, who joined Redmond just four months ago, will succeed Bret Arsenault as CISO and lead the organization through a new initiative called “Secure Future Initiative,” which promises quicker cloud patches, better identity signing key management, and a pledge to ship software with a higher default security bar.

Arsenault was moved to a security advisory position after serving as Microsoft’s Chief Information Security Officer for 14 years.
