The current chief of security of Verizon, a company embroiled in controversy over the recent revelation of a secret government domestic spy program, is a former high level official in the FBI.

Michael Mason, Verizon’s chief security officer, began working with the company in 2008. When he left the bureau, he was in charge of the bureau’s Criminal, Cyber, Response and Services Branch.

The branch — whose responsibilities range from investigating financial crime to “computer-based criminal threats against the U.S.” — was described in his hiring announcement in 2007 as the “largest” in the FBI.

Also a veteran who served with the United States Marine Corps from 1980-1985, Mason began his distinguished career with the FBI in 1985. He was awarded the Presidential Rank Award for Meritorious Executive Service at the FBI in 2004.
