RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) announced today that two facilities, located in San Bernardino, California and Rosslyn, Virginia, have received the 2019 James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award from the Defense Security Service.
“We are honored to have two facilities selected from thousands of cleared facilities from across the country. This prestigious award is the result of our employees’ commitment to handling our customers’ sensitive information with care. Security comes first and our team understands that,” said Ron Gembarosky, SAIC vice president of security.
SAIC’s facilities were among the 51 selected from approximately 13,000 cleared facilities to receive the Cogswell award. The recognized facilities in San Bernardino and Rosslyn support government programs that deliver space systems, engineering, cloud, cybersecurity, and IT modernization solutions.
To be selected, a DSS Industrial Security Representative nominated SAIC’s facilities that had at a minimum two consecutive superior industrial security review ratings and showed a sustained degree of excellence and innovation in their overall security program management, implementation, and oversight. DSS makes the final selections.
The Cogswell award was established in 1966 and is named in honor of the late Air Force Col. James S. Cogswell, who was the first chief of the unified office of Industrial Security. Cogswell was responsible for developing the basic principles of the Industrial Security Program, which includes an emphasis on the partnership between industry and government to protect classified information. This partnership ultimately ensures the greatest protection for the U.S. warfighter and the nation’s classified information.
