Each award, in turn, has numerous subcategories under which to enter, including categories such as emerging technology solutions, mobile learning applications, product or service setting a trend, and others.
"We are honoured to be named a finalist," says Mike Baker, Principal of Mosaic451. "Mosaic451 firmly believes that securing the networks and devices of school districts is essential as cyberattacks continue to grow day by day. Our unique blend of deep technical experience and operational discipline is what has made us a trusted provider in the education industry."
The majority of Mosaic's senior staff and technical staff have held leadership and senior analyst positions in the creation of the nation's first K-12 Security Operations Center (SOC) based at Clark County School District, DOE National Nuclear Security Administration's (NNSA) Information Assurance Response Center (IARC) in Las Vegas, NV; and NNSA's Office of Secure Transportation's (OST) Transportation and Emergency Control Center (TECC), which, among other things, are responsible for defending the US nuclear arsenal against cyber-attacks.
