WASHINGTON -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- GovSec – the Government Security Conference and Expo – today announced that it is seeking nominations for its inaugural Gov30 award program, which is designed to recognize individuals for their contributions to the government security community. Nominations are due Friday, March 14. Winners will be announced on April 15, and the Gov30 Awards will be presented at a luncheon on May 14, which takes place during GovSec 2014 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
“While technology plays an important role, it is most often the people – with their individual talents, leadership and dedication – who have the most influence in driving important changes in the way the government works and how security is maintained to protect and improve the lives of citizens,” said Don Berey, senior event director for GovSec. “By launching this new awards program, we hope to identify and honor the stellar work that government security professionals are doing to ensure our security.”
The Gov30 awards will recognize 30 leaders for their contributions to government security, focusing on individual accomplishments in 2013. Winners of Gov30 Awards will be honored for their work on specific projects that had a significant impact on government security.
Nominees can come from any facet of the government security community, from agency employees and government contractors, to members of Congress, academics and independent watchdogs. An independent panel of judges will evaluate nominees on what they were able to achieve and the impact of their work, among other criteria.
GovSec is the country’s largest and most dynamic government security event. In its 13th year, GovSec also will feature TREXPO, the Law Enforcement Expo, and will be held in conjunction with CPM East, for continuity, response and recovery professionals.
