USPS Wins Award for Innovative Online Security


USPS® has won CSO Magazine’s 2014 CSO40 award for innovative use of online security.

According to the magazine, the CSO40 awards “recognize security projects and initiatives that demonstrate outstanding business value and thought leadership [and] are presented to organizations for a particular project/initiative within each organization.”

Boeing, Comcast, the Department of Homeland Security, Intel Corp., Lockheed Martin, and Metlife are among the 39 recipients of this year’s awards.

Information Systems Security Manager Andrew Kotynski of the Computer Incident Response Team will accept the award on behalf of USPS. Kotynski also won the MeriTalk’s Cyber Security Exchange’s 2013 Cyber Security Confidence Award for his work in the development of a USPS network monitoring program.

“Being acknowledged as a CSO40 winner is significant public recognition for this team’s commitment and the leadership that Andy provides in protecting USPS and its customers against threats,” said Corporate Information Security Office Manager Chuck McGann. “When you consider the companies evaluated, and the size differentials that exist, you start to realize the magnitude of the challenge for all of the awardees. Certainly, USPS is fortunate to have dedicated professionals like Andy and his team.”

McGann added, “This is an extreme honor and I’m proud to work with them on a daily basis.”
