Washington D.C. January 25, 2017 – The Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology (ICIT), America’s Cybersecurity Think Tank™, presented Congressman Jim Langevin, from Rhode Island’s 2nd congressional district, with its Transcend Award at the Congressman’s office in the Rayburn House Office Building.
The Transcend Award is an honor given each year to a distinguished member of the critical infrastructure community who represents diversity and leadership in cybersecurity. As one of the most active leaders in cybersecurity on Capitol Hill, Congressman Langevin serves as the co-chair of the Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus, the ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee Emerging Threats and Capabilities subcommittee, and a member of the House Committee on Homeland Security Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection and Security Technologies.
Thanks in part to his leadership and his understanding of the complex threat landscape facing the critical infrastructure sectors of the United States, cybersecurity has become a top priority for the legislative community.
As the recipient of the Transcend award, ICIT Sr. Fellows James Scott and Parham Eftekhari presented Congressman Langevin with an heirloom-quality sterling silver Tiffany’s compass, which symbolizes his contributions in leading the cybersecurity and critical infrastructure community.
ICIT is proud to honor Congressman Langevin for his role in protecting our Nation’s critical infrastructures from cyber adversaries and to recognize him as an ally of the cybersecurity community. The Institute’s Fellows and other stakeholders including federal agency, legislative and private sector leaders, look forward to working with him to ensure critical infrastructure resiliency and national security.
