Facebook’s chief information security officer is stepping down after battling with other company officials on how to handle the spread of disinformation on the platform, The New York Times reported Monday.

Alex Stamos said he would leave Facebook in December after his daily duties were assigned to other company staffers, but agreed to stay with the network until August to help with the transition.

He had advocated for Facebook to be transparent about the activity of Russians and other trolls on the platform, clashing with other executives, including Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, according to the Times.
