Sameer Bhalotra is leaving as the White House’s deputy cybersecurity coordinator.

Government and industry sources confirm Bhalotra is moving back to Northern California after his wife got a new job. His last day will be in the next few weeks.

The White House would not comment on Bhalotra’s status.

Bhalotra came to the White House in June 2010 after serving as a staff member on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

During his time at the White House, Bhalotra played a key role in helping the administration develop cyber initiatives, including the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace, the legislative proposal sent to Capitol Hill in May and the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education.
