General Topics of Discussion:
What has Peraton been doing in 2021.
Why we brought three organizations together.
Our new scope and scale, and why we chose to scale.
What's Peraton's future plans?
How we are responding to / anticipating industry and government trends?
How our approach compares with peers and customers.
Our conception of national security is much broader than the traditional focus on military threats and solutions, it includes financial security, commerce security, and health security. Today we are hearing the Biden administration speak in these terms when discussing the economy, the pandemic and cyber attacks. It is important to understand the “global” national security ecosystem. Pandemics, cyber attacks, etc. don’t respect geographic boundaries. Threats originate from around the world and land on our shores and in our systems.
