GSN announces winners and finalists for the 2017 Airport, Seaport, Border Security Awards

Government Security News is pleased to announce the Winners and Finalists in its 2017 Airport, Seaport, Border Security Awards Program -- and to thank Chuck Brooks for his fifth time serving as lead judge of a GSN awards program.

Before moving on to the Winners announcements, we’d like to congratulate Mr. Brooks for his fine work in the fourth annual Cyber Security Summit at DC Metro – a powerful conference, with each city in the conference bringing its personality to the table.

Panel 2 of the Summit was moderated by none other than Chuck Brooks, President for Government Relations and Marketing at Sutherland Global Services, who ran the most interactive panel of the day. With all guests being members of DC’s IT Tech elite and the subject of the panel being future threats and new defense technologies, the ballroom was buzzing with questions and discourse. It’s safe to say that this panel ran much like a think-tank, comprised of DC’s greatest tech minds and fueled by the spirit of collaborative learning.

Chuck has also been cited by Linkedin as one of the top 5 out of 500 million members to follow for emerging technology issues. Linkedin will also be featuring Chuck in their upcoming blogs as a cyber security SME and advisor.
