Peraton announced on Tuesday it has appointed William Evanina, former director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC), to the company's advisory board. Evanina joined other experienced government and industry technology experts who provide advice and counsel to the company to guide its strategic direction.

Evanina was appointed NCSC director in 2014. He was responsible for overseeing multiple counterintelligence and security programs, such as the Counterintelligence Cyber Operations, National Insider Threat Task Force, Supply Chain Threat Risk and Mitigation, and Critical Infrastructure Threat Awareness and Mitigation.
Evanina also led the center's effort to automate security clearance process elements and establish a clearance-holder monitoring system.
