The company has announced veteran security executive Alex Stamos as its CISO, confirming a rumor that he would be tapped for the role.

Yahoo on Monday appointed veteran security executive Alex Stamos as its chief information security officer. The announcement brings to bear rumors that Stamos would be tapped for the position.

Stamos had been the chief technology officer of the security firm Artemis. He succeeds Yahoo’s former CISO Justin Somaini, taking a seat that had been vacant for more than a year.

Stamos was also a key organizer of TrustyCon, a security industry conference held last month that was billed as counter programming to the RSA conference because of RSA’s supposed involvement with the NSA.

He will report to Jay Rossiter, Yahoo’s senior vice president of platforms and personalization products, and not CEO Marissa Mayer, as was previously rumored. He’ll lead Yahoo’s security team, internally referred to as “Paranoids.” “This is a broad role which includes implementing top-to-bottom security for our products and systems but also to lead the company and the industry in not just how security works today but how it needs to work in the future,” Rossiter wrote in a blog post.
