GMRE, Inc. Receives Top DSS Security Rating
During our 2017 Defense Security Service (DSS) audit GMRE received a "Superior" rating. The DSS audit consisted of a thorough review of all aspects of GMRE’s security posture and determined that it not only meets NISP standards, but far exceeds them.
According to DSS, a "Superior" rating is reserved for contractors that consistently and fully implement the requirements of the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM) in an effective fashion, resulting in a superior security posture compared with other contractors of similar size and complexity. The facility must have documented procedures that heighten security awareness of employees and foster cooperation within the security community. Fewer than 4 percent of approximately 13,500 facilities that DSS oversees receive a Superior rating.
"We are honored to receive this recognition and proud of the security first mindset our team displays", said Michael Gauss, President/CEO. As we move forward, a security focused team and a Superior rated program highlights to our customers that protecting our Nations technology and information is a top priority.
