American Security Today’s Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards prestigious program is the largest and most comprehensive in the industry, highlighting the most cutting-edge and forward-thinking security solutions in a variety of government, homeland security, enterprise, and public safety vertical markets. The 2019 ‘ASTORS’ Awards were presented at a Homeland Awards Luncheon at ISC East, Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City.
“As the nation continues to respond to escalating threats from home and abroad, the innovative solutions recognized here have been developed to prevent, address, and mitigate those threats,” said Michael Madsen, co-founder and publisher of American Security. “The evolving threat landscape continues to support tremendous growth in the field of Homeland Security. Today, the US is increasingly focusing on innovative physical and IT/cyber security solutions and they are calling on government and industry leaders like The Santa Fe Group to help them do so.
As the trusted source for TPRM, the Shared Assessments Program was selected for its ability to consistently help organizations stay up to date in the threat and risk environment, including regulations, industry standards, and guidelines. The Program uses a two-step approach to managing third party risk and follows a “trust, but verify” approach, enabling companies to fine-tune their third party risk management programs according to each individual strategy.
“Almost every day, headlines and world events remind us how important it is to identify and address the physical and digital vulnerabilities that are so readily exploited by bad actors,” stated Catherine A. Allen, chairman and CEO of Shared Assessments. “We are honored to be recognized in the distinguished 2019 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program for our achievements and advances in TPRM offerings and solutions. This award is further validation that our Program helps enable security leaders to stay abreast of today’s third party risks and be aware of the tools and solutions needed.”
