The Security Network’s Chairman's Award recognizes individuals and organizations from the government and private sector who have been exemplary in their on-going efforts to enhance security by 'Fostering Innovation through Collaboration'.
The Security Network released the following statement in announcement of the award:
"Michael Waksman is the first recipient of the new International - Private Sector award. Michael participated in two conferences of The Security Network in 2010/2011 and has promoted the opportunity for Finnish companies to make important channel partner and end user contacts via The Security Network events. Michael is an active supporter and promoter of the innovative Finnish security industry and its organizations and has fostered organizational and government agency collaboration with The Security Network. He is a very fitting recipient because he represents a security technology company with innovative technology that is growing primarily through international sales and his personal commitment to promote Innovation through Collaboration on a multilateral basis."
Upon receiving the award, Mr. Waksman stated, "This is a wonderful surprise. I am deeply honored. The Security Network has repeatedly delivered high value in terms of investing time and money to reach key people at the top of highly targeted and elusive organizations in government and defense. This is thanks in large part to The Security Network's fantastic team and their personal commitment to ensuring that each participant walks away with a handful of truly valuable working relationships. I am proud to promote their mission and help enable further collaborative innovation between Finland and the United States."
Mr. Waksman went on to say, "There is such a wealth of innovative security technology in Finland, yet we seem to struggle with getting out there are showing the world exactly how great we are. My sincere wish is for more and more Finnish companies to realize the opportunity available here with The Security Network."
