ARLINGTON, VA (June 9, 2021) — The United States Department of Defense’s Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) has recognized OnPoint Consulting, Inc. as a 2021 James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award winner. This award is given to companies that run exemplary security programs. Less that 1% of over 13,000 cleared companies in the National Industrial Security Program (NISP) receive this award each year, and in 2021, only 40 were chosen as recipients.
“OnPoint’s selection for the 2021 Cogswell Award reflects our commitment and focus to the protection of networks, systems and data in defending our national security”, said Tim Smith, President of OnPoint. “I am extremely proud of our team members and the hard work they do every day to ensure that security is a fundamental element of all services we provide.”
The origins of this award are described as follows on DCSA’s website:
“The Cogswell Award was established in 1966 in honor of the late Air Force Col. James S. Cogswell, who was the first chief of the United Office of Industrial Security. Col. Cogswell [was] responsible for the underlying principle of the industrial security program, recognizing the importance of true partnership between industry and government to ensure the protection of classified information, materials, and programs.”
