Bed Bath & Beyond Inc said its customer and technology chief, Rafeh Masood, will step down, days after the home goods retailer reported a possible cyber security incident.
Last week, Bed Bath said a third party had accessed its data through a phishing scam by gaining access to the hard drive and certain shared drives of one of its employees. It’s still reviewing if the drives had any sensitive or personally identifiable information.
Rafeh Masood’s resignation, effective Dec. 2, was not the result of any disagreement with Bed Bath & Beyond on any matter related to the company’s operations, practices or financial statements.
Recently, Bed Bath & Beyond appointed Sue Gove as its Chief Executive Officer after it replaced Mark Tritton in a management shake-up to reverse a slump in its business.
