2015 Government Security News (GSN) Homeland Security Awards
Splunk customer City of Los Angeles was named the “Most Notable Government Cybersecurity Program, Project or Initiative” in the 2015 GSN Homeland Security Awards. Now in its seventh year, this prestigious awards program honors the distinguished vendors of IT security and physical security products and solutions and the dedicated federal, state, county and municipal government agencies, whose combined efforts keep our nation secure. The City of Los Angeles’ Chief Information Security Officer Timothy Lee led an initiative to help the city’s Information Technology Agency (ITA) centralize the management, maintenance and analysis of security data across more than 37 departments. To accomplish this, Lee turned to Splunk to help ITA deploy a unique, cloud-based security information and event management (SIEM) solution to enhance the city’s cybersecurity capabilities.
