Savannah River Remediation repeats as national cyber champions

Savannah River Remediation Cyber Security Specialist Larry Sprowls runs tests on SRR’s computer security systems.

Savannah River Remediation has been named a champion of National Cyber Security Awareness Month for the second consecutive year.

 

The honor is presented each October by the National Cyber Security Alliance , the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Cyber Security Awareness Month organization.

The program highlights companies that are dedicated to promoting a safer, more secure and more trusted internet. Other 2016 champions include AT&T, Cornell University, Johnson & Johnson and MetLife Inc.

The effort to repeat as champion was led by the SRR Cyber Security Team, according to a news release. The cyber team promotes internet and computer safety though multiple outlets, including weekly messages in employee communications and monthly lunch and learn sessions.

Sandra Fairchild, SRR Director of Project Services and Support, praised SRR's dedicated role in bringing cyber security awareness to employees and the community.

"Cybercrime is a staggering problem in our world," Fairchild said. "That's why it's important for Savannah River Remediation to educate employees with ways to stay safe while using the internet. Our employees become ambassadors and spread awareness to their families and neighbors."

National Cyber Security Awareness Month was created as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure every American has the resources needed to stay safer and more secure online, according to the National Cyber Security Alliance.

SRR is the liquid waste contractor for the U.S. Department of Energy at the Savannah River Site. SRR is composed of a team of companies led by AECOM with partners Bechtel National, CH2M and BWX Technologies. Subcontractors for the contract include AREVA, Atkins and URS Professional Solutions.
