Terida Systems Winner of the Inaugural Defense Innovation Challenge
TORONTO, June 15, 2016 /CNW/ -- Teri Marlene Prince, CEO of the Terida companies, is pleased to announce that the company has been chosen as one of the winners of the inaugural NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCI) Defense Innovation Challenge.
"I am thrilled that Terida received this recognition by NATO. With vigilance in cyber security so important in our modern world, Terida is committed to providing the best supply chain and e-justice solutions available in the market," said Prince.
The NCI Defense Innovation Challenge was created to recognize companies that accelerate transformational, state-of-the-art technology solutions in support of NATO C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance) and cyber capability requirements.
Terida's submission "Protecting information flow for the supply chain and contractor logistics support" was one of the ten international winners of the Innovation Challenge. "Being invited to demonstrate the benefits of Terida's Contractor Logistics Services (CLS) Framework, and be showcased at the 2016 NCI Agency Conference and AFCEA TechNet International (NITEC16), from June 7 to 9 in Tallinn, Estonia was a huge honour," said Prince.
"The large number of high quality proposals we received made selection difficult," said NCI Agency General Manager Koen Gijsbers. "However, it also signals the vast potential for small businesses and academia throughout the Alliance to contribute to NATO cyber defence, and we will be working hard in the coming months to create mechanisms for closer engagement with them."
The Terida CLS Framework identified by NATO's "High-Level Selection Board as a top ranked technology solution" addresses many of the challenges facing NATO and the international business community. It provides an auditable repository, deployed in multiple languages from a single installation, which enables NATO to directly engage, credential, train, and manage its large, diverse party and counter-party population, its supply chain, and its myriad of projects and operations.
On June 7th, MGEN (rtd) Gijsbers, together with Lt. Gen. Jeffrey "Jeff" Lofgren, Deputy Chief of Staff, Capability Development, Allied Command Transformation, and H.E. Ambassador Sorin Ducaru, Assistant Secretary General, Emerging Security Challenges, NATO HQ, were personally on hand at the Awards Ceremony to recognize Terida's achievement and present Ms. Prince with the award.
