QinetiQ North America announced Wednesday they are the recipients of the 2014 James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award, Robotics Tomorrow reported.
The award is presented each year by the Defense Security Service, an agency responsible for looking out for some of the nation’s classified assets, who has tailored a set of criteria for companies to be considered for the award.
Robotics Tomorrow said that the criteria for a company to be nominated for the award by an Industrial Security Representative include building and maintaining a security program that exceeds the National Industrial Security Program requirements and providing leadership to other cleared facilities to establish while keeping up with security standards.
“Receiving this award is an immense honor,” said Chilly Williams, chief security officer, QinetiQ North America. “With less than one percent of all cleared contractors being selected annually, I could not be more proud of my team and our organization on this achievement, and would like to congratulate our fellow recipients on a job well done.”
Stan Sims, director of DSS, presented this year’s awards at the 50th Annual NCMS National Seminar in National Harbor, Maryland, Robotics Tomorrow reported.
