The Wall Street Journal reports Capital One Chief Information Security Officer Michael Johnson has been removed and will assume an adviser position with the company. The change in position is potentially linked to Capital One's data breach that affected 106 million consumers in July. The bank was reportedly experiencing cybersecurity issues prior to the breach and has seen its staff shrink in the months that followed the incident. Mike Eason has been named interim CISO, while a search for a permanent replacement is underway. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
