AIKEN, S.C. – The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and two organizations focused on Internet safety recently named the Savannah River Site management and operations contractor a champion of cyber security awareness.
DHS, the National Cyber Security Alliance, and the National Cyber Security Awareness Month organization honored Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (SRNS) for promoting a safer, more secure, and more trusted Internet.
“SRNS is dedicated to providing cyber training for all new employees, as well as an annual refresher cyber training,” said Cheryl Hardy, SRNS manager of cyber security policy. “We also provide ongoing cyber education and awareness activities through monthly safety meetings, pop-up messages on the site’s intranet homepage, quarterly phishing exercises with follow-up training, and security roadshows and lunch and learns throughout the year.”
SRNS provides a cyber education booth for the Science Education Enrichment Day for schoolchildren and supports University of South Carolina Aiken cyber curriculum development and cyber lecture series.
DHS and the cyber security organizations present champions each October for National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Other 2017 champions include Duke Energy, SANS Institute, Augusta University Cyber Institute, IBM, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
