Teledyne Brown Wins Top Security Award
Teledyne Brown Engineering, Inc. (TBE) announced today that the company has been awarded the prestigious James Cogswell Industrial Security Achievement Award from the Defense Security Service (DSS).
The award is DSS’s highest honor and is reserved for companies that have demonstrated a level of security excellence. Of the nearly 12,500 cleared contractor facilities eligible in 2007, less than one twenty-fifth of one percent were selected to receive this Defense Security Service Award.
“We are very pleased to have been singled out for this award,” said Jim Link, president, Teledyne Brown Engineering. “Security is a critical issue in the defense business. For Teledyne Brown to have exceeded requirements is a testament to our security personnel and our entire workforce.”
The Cogswell Award is named for Air Force Colonel James S. Cogswell, who was the first chief of the unified Office of Industrial Security and authored the principles for the program. The award has been presented since 1966.
The selection process for the award is very rigorous. To be considered, a company must be nominated by its assigned Industrial Security Representative; have two consecutive superior security ratings; display sustained excellence in their program management, implementation and oversight and go through a national review process. The Director of DSS selects the final awardees.
The award will be presented during the National Classification Management Society training seminar held in Sparks, Nevada.
