Peraton has hired former Leidos executive Phillip Mazzocco as its new chief security officer.
Mazzocco brings more than 20 years of experience providing industrial security for Fortune 500 companies, Peraton CEO Stu Shea said.
“He understands full-spectrum security – the complex interplay among such aspects as risk management, crisis management, program security, international operations, training and insider threat,” Shea said. “His leadership and vision will guide Peraton’s compliance programs and ensure the safety of our people, data, and property.”
Mazzocco recently served as Leidos’ vice president for sector security, leading security operations across a multicustomer $4 billion portfolio of national security programs. In that role, he managed the security team fundamental to the multibillion-dollar modernization of the Defense Healthcare Management Systems for the Defense Department. He also served on the board of directors for the Industrial Security Working Group.
Before Leidos, Mazzocco held senior security positions for companies including General Dynamics, CGI Federal and SAIC.
