This facility was recognized for its excellence and innovation in security management and implementation on June 12th, during the NCMS 60th Annual Training Seminar. The Cogswell Award is the highest honor DCSA can bestow in the cleared industry.

"We are honored by DOD's trust in our ability to protect our nation's sensitive information," said John DeSimone, CEO of Nightwing. "This award showcases the outstanding commitment and excellence of our team in a demanding security environment. I am proud of their contributions and grateful to see our facility earn this distinguished recognition."

"Each and every member of the team is responsible for security in our business," said Nightwing Vice President of Security Mario Orsini. "This commitment is deeply ingrained in our culture. We know that by maintaining the most rigorous security protocols, we are helping our government partners advance our national security interests."

Of approximately 12,500 cleared facilities, fewer than 1% are annually selected to receive the award. This year, 14 facilities were selected. To be considered for the Cogswell Award, facilities must establish and sustain security programs that surpass industry guidelines, provide leadership to other cleared facilities, and institute best practices to maintain the highest security standards. Contractors are nominated by a DCSA industrial security representative and qualify only after receiving two consecutive years of superior inspection ratings.

Established in 1966, the award honors Air Force Col. James S. Cogswell, the first chief of the Unified Office of Industrial Security in the Department of Defense. Cogswell developed the core principles of the Industrial Security Program, focusing on industry and government partnership to protect classified information.
