In 1989, the National Security Agency (NSA) established the Information Systems Security National Awards to recognize outstanding Federal Government organizational and individual excellence in the field of information systems security. Today, these annual awards are named in honor of the cryptographic pioneer, Frank B. Rowlett. The awards are given to recognize both organizational and individual contributions made to the cybersecurity discipline.
The Frank B. Rowlett Trophy for Organizational Achievement is awarded to the Federal Government organization that makes the most significant contributions to the improvement of national cybersecurity, operational cybersecurity readiness, or the defensive cybersecurity operations posture of the United States.
To ensure that all deserving individuals and organizations in the community have an opportunity to compete, NSA’s Deputy National Manager (DNM) for National Security Systems urges you to nominate those whose accomplishments in cybersecurity most warrant recognition.
