+ - Senior FBI Leader Hired by Verizon

Submitted by Anon
Anon (666) writes "While it's now known that Verizon has been assisting the U.S. government in conducting warrantless surveillance today's announcement that Verizon Taps Senior FBI Leader as New Chief Security Officer makes one wonder how much closer this relationship can get. From the announcement:


Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) today named Michael A. Mason, currently the executive assistant director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, to be the company's new chief security officer. In his current position at the FBI, Mason is in charge of the Bureau's Criminal, Cyber, Response and Services Branch — the largest unit in the FBI.
