Leidos announced it has hired Amy Davis to be the company's senior vice president and chief security officer.

Davis will be responsible for leading, managing and directing the activities of Leidos' corporate security organization, according to a company statement. She will also oversee compliance with U.S. and foreign government national security standards.

Davis, who spent two decades at the National Security Agency, most recently served as deputy chief for NSA's security and counterintelligence office. Her career "included roles leading security operations focused on insider risk, emerging threats, physical security and crisis management," Leidos said.
