Defense Security Service award recognizes outstanding Industrial Security achievement

Force 3 has been awarded the James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award.

We believe that all our employees are the cornerstones of facility security success.

Force 3, the network security company, was awarded the James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award for 2015. Celena Spry, Facility Security Officer, and Jane Krauss, Senior Director, Administration at Force 3, accepted the award on behalf of the company at a ceremony held June 24 in Las Vegas.

This Defense Security Service (DSS) honor is awarded annually to less than one percent of the more than 13,500 cleared contractors in the National Industrial Security Program. Force 3 was eligible for the award because the company achieved a DSS superior rating for at least two consecutive years. Force 3 demonstrated outstanding performance in multiple security criteria, including:

  •     Overall security program;
  •     Senior management support;
  •     Security education and awareness; and
  •     Classified material controls.

“As the network security company, we come down strongly on the side of preparedness, awareness, training and proactive prevention of security risks,” said Spry. “This company-wide commitment is what’s led to our superior ratings, and the honor of receiving the prestigious James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award.”

Force 3’s commitment to security starts in training. All employees, cleared or not, receive the same in-depth security training as part of their onboarding process. These messages are reinforced through reminders posted throughout the facility and a special security week held concurrently with Veteran’s Day.

“We believe that all our employees are the cornerstones of facility security success,” said Mike Greaney, Force 3 CEO. “We know that at some point, our employees will experience a security incident. It’s up to us to decide whether they will be prepared to handle the situation properly and in accordance to our security principles, or, if the incident will spiral into a security crisis.”
