Department of Defence recognition for L-3 secure facility

L-3 Communications : 24 July, 2008  (Company News)
Camden location of L-3 picks up the James Cogswell award in recognition of industrial security excellence
L-3 Communications has announced that its Communication Systems-East facility in Camden has received the 2008 James Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award by the US Defence Security Service (DSS). The award recognises industrial security excellence and is the highest honour a company can receive for excellence in the handling of classified information.

'The Cogswell Award is the ultimate security distinction for defence contractors, and we are very proud to be recognised by the Defence Security Service," said Gregory Roberts, president and chief operating officer of L-3 Communication Systems-East (CS-East). "This achievement underscores the unfailing commitment our employees have in supporting our military personnel and government customers.'

L-3 Communication Systems-East was one of 23 facilities selected from over 12,000 defence contractor sites to receive a Cogswell Award. The company received the honour at the annual conference of the National Classification Management Society in Mashantucket. L-3 CS-East previously received this award in 1997.

The Cogswell Award, established in 1966, is named in honour of the late Air Force Colonel James Cogswell, the first chief of industrial security within the Department of Defence. Colonel Cogswell was responsible for developing the basic principles of the Industrial Security Program, which include an emphasis on the partnership between industry and government to protect classified information. This partnership ultimately ensures the greatest protection for the US soldier and the nation's classified information.

The award criterion focuses on principles of industrial security excellence and the selection process is extremely rigorous. Factors include establishing and maintaining a security program that far exceeds the basic National Industrial Security Program requirements and providing leadership to other cleared facilities in establishing best practices while maintaining the highest standards for security. To be eligible for nomination, facilities must have at minimum two consecutive superior industrial security review ratings and show a sustained degree of excellence and innovation in their overall security program management, implementation and oversight.
