James S. Cogswell cogswellOutstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award

In June 2015, LexisNexis Special Services Inc. was a recipient of the James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award for 2015. The award, which was presented by the Defense Security Service (DSS) during the National Classification Management Society (NCMS) 2015 Annual Conference, recognizes industrial security excellence by select large and small defense contractors that are subject to recurring assessments.

The award criteria places a focus on principles of industrial security excellence, including factors such as 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.

The Cogswell Award selection process is rigorous. A DSS Industrial Security Representative may only nominate facilities that have at a minimum two consecutive superior industrial security review ratings and which show a sustained degree of excellence and innovation in their overall security program management, implementation and oversight.
