Ashburn-based Telos Corp. received the James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award from the Defense Security Service.
The Cogswell Award is the most prestigious honor the Defense Security Service may bestow to cleared industry.
The award was presented at the National Classification Management Society’s 53rd Annual Training and Seminar. Of more than 13,000 organizations eligible for the Cogswell Award, fewer than 1 percent receive it.
To be considered for the award, a facility must have two consecutive superior industrial security review ratings, which shows a sustained degree of excellence and innovation in their overall security program management, implementation and oversight.
“We hold ourselves to the highest security standards each day, and we appreciate this recognition,” Telos CEO and Chairman John B. Wood stated. “I’m so proud of the work our team does to uphold our superior level of security—this award is really a testament to the men and women at Telos who put forth tremendous effort to ensure the continued confidentiality of peers, partners and customers and the security of their systems and information.”
