Q&A With Peraton Cyber Mission Sector President Tom Afferton Highlights Public-Private Collaboration to Ensure More Resilient Cyber Environment

In the most recent Executive Spotlight interview, ExecutiveBiz spoke with Tom Afferton, president of Cyber Mission sector at Peraton, to talk about the company’s recent market growth and contract wins. The Q&A also tackled the most critical challenges facing those in the federal sector and how the industry could help address them.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Afferton:

“Peraton, on more broad terms, is sharing the vision illustrated by National Cyber Director Chris Inglis with a heavy emphasis on the need for improved collaboration between the public and private sectors as well as across sectors.

As we look at creating a more resilient cyber environment, Peraton holds that collaboration as a top priority. Recently, Director Inglis admitted that, in general, industry likely overestimates what information the federal government has about cyber resilience and threats, while the government likely underestimates what industry has. That challenge reinforces the need for far greater collaboration. In line with Inglis’ vision, Peraton has structured ourselves to increase cross-sector collaboration.”
