The U.S. Defense Security Service (DSS) announced that the global security company, Lockheed Martin, was awarded four 2011 James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Awards last week. These achievements mark the highest number of awards given to a single corporation this year.
The awards were announced and given during the DSS annual NCMS training seminar on June 22 in New Orleans, La. The seminar recognizes those industrial security professionals who have displayed excellence over the past year.
The four awards include:
-Missiles and Fire Control Facility (Troy, Ala.), which supports the production of THAAD, JASSM and Javelin missiles.
-Missiles and Fire Control Facility (Grand Prairie, Tex.) which provided engineering and developing support to programs such as PAC-3 and MEADS.
-The Medium Extended Air Defense (MEADS) International Organization (Orlando, Fla., Munich, Rome), a major contractor for MEADS, a ground-mobile air and missile defense scheme.
-LMSecurity Operations Center (Orlando, Fla.), which is a security clearance processing complex which manages more than 75,000 Department of Defense (DoD) security clearances for Lockheed Martin.
“These awards are tremendous recognition of the important work our Corporation’s security professionals do each and every day,” said Lockheed Martin’s chief security officer, Bob Trono. “Protecting our people, our facilities, our information and our systems must remain a priority in light of the critical work our Corporation does to promote global security.”
