Viasat Receives Two Prestigious James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Awards from the U.S. Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency
New Awards Validate Viasat’s Ongoing Commitment to Instituting High Security Standards at its Facilities
The Cogswell Award recognizes industrial security excellence and is the highest honor the DCSA grants to cleared industry partners. Out of the approximately 13,000 cleared contractors in the National Industrial Security Program (NISP), less than 1% are annually selected to receive an award. Cogswell Award nominees undergo a competitive, eight-month evaluation by a national review team, with DCSA selecting the final winners. Winning programs must establish and maintain a security program that goes well beyond the minimum NISP requirements, while also providing leadership and best practice guidance on instituting high security standards.
The Cogswell Award was established in 1966 in honor of the late Air Force Col.
