Under Sengex’s contract with the George Washington University Center for Excellence in Public Leadership, Mr. John Meincke, CEO of Sengex, chaired a panel session on Cybersecurity for the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Leadership Development Program.
In addition to Mr. Meincke, the 2 hour panel included: Mr. John Grimes, former Assistant Secretary of Defense for Networks and Information Integration (ASD NII), Lieutenant General Bob Shea USMC (Ret), President and CEO of the Armed Forces Communications-Electronics Association (AFCEA) International, Major General Harold Moulton USAF (Ret),Senior Director Cyberspace Strategies, Innovation, and Consulting at Stellar Solutions Corporation, and Major General Bill Russ USA (Ret) Vice President Intelligence and Information Services (IIS) for Raytheon Corporation.
The panel was the kickoff activity for DISA’s three and a half day Leadership Development program, which followed Lieutenant General Ronnie Hawkins, DISA’s Director, welcoming address to all the DISA employees and attendees participating in the innovative programs.
George Washington University (GWU) in association with the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) has contracted Sengex to provide technology and operational expertise for their Executive Leadership Program (ELP)and Emerging Leaders Development Program (ELDP)
The ELP and ELDP are designed to provide a comprehensive leadership development experience for DISA employees in Grades GS 9-15. The program objective is to deepen DISA’s pool of high quality supervisors, managers, and leaders throughout the organization. Both programs blend traditional classroom instruction at two Annual, and one Mid-Year Conference supported by web and telecommunications-enabled coaching betweenmeetings
Sengex’s five year contract award will provide GWU and DISA Sengex’s subject matter expertise and mentoring in the areas of cyber security, strategic problem solving, and senior leader skillset building across both face-to-face and distance learning simulations for DISA’s emerging leaders.
Alvarez and Associated won a task order under the SEWP contract for the installation, integration and services of United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM) expansion to their Mobility Threat Management (MTM) solution provided by Sengex’s technology partner, AirPatrol Corporation.
The contract will heighten SOCOMs MTM system by expanding its footprint within SOCOM “No Wireless Allowed” facilities; and enhance security through location-based detection of expanded wireless formats and protocols.
Sengex has been awarded a task order under the GSA vehicle from U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) for the procurement of mobile wireless device detection systems
Sengex will provide systems training and support for AirPatrol’s Rapid Deployment System (RDS). This new capability for INSCOM will enable them to achieve on-demand location-based detection of unauthorized wireless devices within INSCOM facilities.
Sengex demonstrated AirPatrol’s Wireless Detection system within South Carolina’s Department of Correctional (SCDC) Broad River correctional facility. This demonstration was designed to show how SCDC can locate a contraband device within a prison population to determine which cell the device is in and provide for continuous monitoring.
While the prison facility is a very challenging environment from an Radio Frequency prospective, Sengex working with AirPatrol and the prison officials was able to demonstrate how the AirPatrol product is able to overcome the environment and provide a much needed capability.
The demonstration showed SCDC officials a capability that can eliminate inmates ability to make unmonitored calls via contraband cellphones that can result in activities that include, managing criminal enterprises, drug deals, credit card fraud, planning prison riots and escapes, while in parallel reducing the risk to employees and public officials’ safety.
SCDC is in the process of evaluating the results of the demonstration to determine the feasibility of its use across multiple SCDC locations.
