GSN HSA 2017 Winners

Government Security News is pleased to announce the Winners and Finalists in its 9th annual Homeland Security Awards Program, and to thank the indefatigable team of judges.

It is similarly no surprise, in light of what took place in the recent news, that the subject of Cybersecurity attracted more entries in the 2017 Awards Program than any other topic.

GSN officially turns 15 years old this year and the GSN team recognizes our advertising/sponsor/partners are our greatest asset! We want to thank all of our loyal readers for staying wth GSN.

Before moving on to the announcement of Winners and Finalists, I would like to share with everyone the comments that our Judges made about the quality of the entries in the Awards Program, which I believe described this year’s Awards perfectly. The comments also explain why you will see that we moved back to our previous system of  platinum, gold and silver winners.

 “These are my general perceptions of the Awards: Each year the quality and scope of the submissions makes it more difficult to judge. They are all deserving. There are no inferior security products or services that I evaluated – they are all stellar. The approaches and methods sometimes differ among the entries and that is largely because they are highly focused on their specific client needs. As to the government entries, these submissions exemplify the best in public/private cooperation. Government is moving rapidly into the digital era and integrating technologies, processes and accordingly new mandates of their government agencies and programs.”
