American Security Today’s Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, and now entering its Seventh Year, continues to recognize industry leaders of Physical and Border Security, Cybersecurity, Emergency Preparedness – Management and Response, Law Enforcement, First Responders, as well as federal, state and municipal government agencies in the acknowledgment of their outstanding efforts to Keep our Nation Secure.

The highlight of the Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program is the ‘ASTORS’ Awards Presentation Banquet, an exclusive event featured on the opening day of ISC East, the Northeast’s largest security industry event, and the Natural Disaster and Emergency Management (NDEM) Expo.

In 2021 two hundred representatives of law enforcement, public safety, and top industry leaders came together to honor the selfless service of those who stand on the front lines, and those who stand beside them – providing the capabilities and technologies to create a safer world for generations to come.

The United States was forever changed 20 years ago on September 11th, and we were fortunate to have many of those who responded to those horrific tragedies join us at the 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Luncheon.

In the days that followed 9/11, the critical needs of protecting our country catapulted us into new and innovative ways to secure our homeland – which is how many of the agencies and enterprise organizations that are today ‘ASTORS’ Awards Champions, came into being.

2021 marked the 20th anniversary of Homeland Security as we know it today, including the 20th anniversary of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), who gathered with us to celebrate new ways of thinking about responsibility, new legislation, and comprehensive collaborations between private and public sectors that have led to developing intelligence and technologies which serve to protect our nation.
