Vienna, Va., Oct. 20, 2011 — NJVC®, one of the largest information technology solutions providers supporting the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), is proud to announce that its Cyber Security Dashboard development team was named the winner in the (ISC)² Government Information Security Leadership Awards (GISLA) Team Award category. The NJVC team was honored for the creation and deployment of the Cyber Dashboard, which visualizes, analyzes and generates reports from the aggregated and correlated data feeds of multiple legacy security systems.

This cost-efficient and highly effective tool prevented numerous cyber attacks against DoD:  first-alert detection of more than 1,000 atypical message traffic attempts and the detection of a malicious email campaign.

The members of the NJVC Cyber Dashboard development team are:

  • Chris Hughes, CISSP, CCNA, GCFW, cyber security chief engineer
  • Egon Rinderer, CISSP, information technology/information services technical executive and senior cyber security technical programs advisor
  • Jeremy Slatton, CISSP, cyber engineering lead
  • Charles Beatte, software engineer
  • Nate Carroll, cyber engineer
  • Tricia Croarkin, cyber engineer
  • Rob Hoffman, software engineer
  • Andrew Mullenix, systems engineer

“NJVC is thrilled that the Cyber Dashboard was recognized by such an eminent organization, (ISC)², and in such an illustrious manner ,” said Jody Tedesco, NJVC president. “The company, particularly its new Cyber Security business unit, is excited to offer this innovative dashboard product and its proven experience in protecting some of the nation’s most sensitive networks and systems to new customers in the intelligence and defense communities, federal civilian agencies and commercial arena.”

The GISLA awards program was established to recognize the ongoing commitment by federal information security leaders to build a highly qualified and ethical workforce. The 2011 awards were presented to individuals and teams in five distinct categories, as well as a special recognition. Honorees were decided by a panel of judges made up of some of the most accomplished information security leaders in both the public and private sectors. The awardees were announced and feted on Oct. 18 at the GISLA Gala held at the Marriott Crystal Gateway in Arlington, Va.

(ISC)²  is the world’s largest not-for-profit information security professional body and administrators of the CISSP®credential program.
