The Defense Security Service has awarded Peraton the James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award, a recognition bestowed on cleared industry.
Peraton received the award at the Annual National Classification Management Society Training Seminar in St. Louis, Missouri. The company was one of 51 recipients to get the award.
Peraton’s cleared facility in Greenbelt, Maryland, was cited for exceeding the highest standards of security and attaining sustained superior industrial security review ratings. There, Peraton supports NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s largest services program, the Space Communications and Network Services contract.
“Recognition at this elite level is an honor, reaffirming our strong customer partnerships and acknowledging our dedication to the safety and security of our programs, facilities, and the people and information we protect,” said Stu Shea, Peraton chairman, president and CEO.
Every year, DSS picks cleared facilities based on criteria that include a nomination by a DSS Industrial Security representative, two consecutive superior industrial security review ratings, and a national vetting process.
“This award is a testament to our corporate commitment to best practices and sustained excellence in security for the missions we support, and we applaud our dedicated security team led by Lisa Brumfield for helping achieve this honor,” stated Phil Mazzocco, Peraton chief security officer.
