The Wall Street Journal: Facebook security chief Alex Stamos said to be planning to leave

Facebook Inc.’s security chief, Alex Stamos, plans to step down from the embattled social-media company this year, people familiar on the matter said, following clashes with policy executives and an internal reorganization that whittled down his responsibilities.

Since the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Stamos has been at the center of Facebook’s response to Russian efforts to manipulate public discourse using its platform. He and other security officials often argued that Facebook FB, -2.56% should publicly disclose more details about the Russian efforts, a stance often at odds with the more cautious approach advocated by Facebook’s policy team, overseen by Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, people familiar with the internal deliberations said.
