Steve Cocco, President of Security Strategies Today, is a counter-terrorism, business continuity and homeland security threat consultant.

Steve served with distinction in the FBI as a special agent and executive manager for nearly three decade. During this time he specialized in vulnerability and threat assessments affecting large public venues, such as hotels, conference halls and sports arenas.

He also worked extensively with foreign police agencies in major special events security, such as the Olympic Games, G-8 summits, and in executive protection for dignitaries. Steve was named Deputy Federal Coordinator for the 2008 Superbowl in Glendale, Arizona by former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, a role which required him to coordinate crisis management and consequence management roles of the federal government in case of a catastrophic attack or natural disaster.

He has conducted threat assessments for the Port of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. Additionally, he led the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force. Among his foreign deployments, Steve responded to the 2008 East Africa embassy bombings and the 2010 printer cartridge aircraft bombing conspiracy in Dubai, UAE.
