Lockheed Martin Receives Six Cogswell Security Awards
BETHESDA, Md., June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Defense Security Service (DSS) recognized six Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) sites with its 2012 James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Awards.
The awards were presented at the annual National Classification Management Society training seminar for industrial security professionals on June 13, 2012, in Orlando, Fla. According to DSS, the Cogswell award is the most prestigious honor that can be bestowed to cleared industry, this year recognizing only 26 of the 13,000 cleared contractors. The criteria include establishing and maintaining a security program that goes well beyond the minimum National Industrial Security Program requirements and providing leadership to other cleared facilities to set high standards for security.
"With less than one percent of eligible facilities receiving this recognition, these awards are a tremendous honor for the Corporation's security professionals who work tirelessly to protect our people, facilities, intellectual property and classified information systems," said Bob Trono, Lockheed Martin's chief security officer. "It's a reflection of our relentless focus on continuous improvement in our security procedures that play such a critical role in our ability to support our military, intelligence community and other government customers."
Lockheed Martin's Corporate Headquarters in Bethesda, Md., which has received six consecutive "Superior" ratings from DSS, received the award along with five additional field locations.
Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 123,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The Corporation's net sales for 2011 were $46.5 billion.
