Army honors security work

Friday, 3 September 2004, 1:10 PM EST

The Army this week issued its first awards to service personnel and contractors for excellence in information assurance.

Col. Thaddeus Dmuchowski, director of information assurance for the Army, said the honors recognize "innovation that brought security under great duress." He said Army information technology officials also hope the awards call attention to information security servicewide.

The information assurance awards, presented at the Directorate of Information Management/Army Knowledge Management conference sponsored by the Army and the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association, come in a year in which service IT officials said Army networks experienced daily, persistent cyberattacks.
