Under Cunningham's leadership, Lenel has enjoyed strong growth, capturing a diversity of new business. Lenel is securing the Panama Canal in a two-phase project that replaces the legacy system in place. The first phase has already been completed and features 340 readers and 240 cameras. Phase two will include the expansion of the canal's two additional locks with 200 more readers.

Other new projects include an integrated IP and digital video system and a robust smart card program at Columbia University in New York City , the installation of a multinational enterprise system for Compania Minera Vale Rio Doce, one of the world's largest mining conglomerates, and deployment of OnGuard Enterprise systems at both John Deere and Boeing.

“Dave has managed Lenel's transition to a UTC Fire & Security company with a deft hand, enabling the team to turn in a record-breaking year,” said Kurt Jablonski, vice president of strategy and business development at UTC Fire & Security. “His strong commitment to Lenel's partners and to aggressive international expansion complements Lenel's best-in-class technology and products.”

Lynn Mattice
Vice President and CSO, Boston Scientific

In a previous life, Lynn Mattice received a special commendation from the Department of Defense citing his visionary leadership in the advancement of security education. The praise stemmed from his participation on a task force established by Presidential Order under President George H.W. Bush to develop a new National Industrial Security Program (NISP). Today, Mr. Mattice's dedication to the continuous improvement of security and security education remains strong.

As vice president and CSO for Boston Scientific—one of the world's largest medical device companies, with operations in more than 100 countries worldwide—Mr. Mattice manages all corporate security functions, business intelligence, business continuity planning and corporate aviation operations. Over his more than nine years at the company, he has developed a tailored, streamlined security organization based on outsourced staff and a strategic focus on meeting the needs of the business.

Mr. Mattice regularly shares the secrets of his success—both in Boston Scientific and the other organizations he's served in his 30-year career, including defense and intelligence, electronics, and consumer products—with other corporate security directors. This year alone he has spoken at the SecureWorld Expo, sat on the steering committee for the Sixth Annual New England Security Forum, and provided interviews or editorial support to many of the major security publications. (In fact, he's featured in another article in this issue, “Think Like a CSO.”)

He currently serves on the board of directors for the International Security Management Association and represents ISMA on the Steering Committee for the Global Congresses on Combating Counterfeiting and Piracy, a joint effort between the World Customs Organization, Interpol and the World Intellectual Property Organization. He is also Chairman Emeritus of the National Intellectual Property Law Institute in Washington D.C. and is guiding the formation of the Centre for Global Competitiveness.

“Lynn Mattice has been involved in innovative and strategic security initiatives for most of his career,” said Bob Hayes, CSO and executive director of the CSO Executive Council. “ Lynn probably managed one of the first converged security operations in the country while at Northrop in the 1980s. He continues that practice of managing converged operations to this day. His work in documenting the key security processes has continued throughout his career. He has been an early adopter and participant of numerous groundbreaking organizations in the government contracts security area, ISMA, the ASIS Best Practices Council, and now the CSO Executive Council. His leadership, enthusiasm and innovation are his hallmarks and a welcome asset for the industry.”

Martin Gren
Co-Founder, Axis Communications

In October, network video solutions manufacturer Axis Communications celebrated the 10 th anniversary of its first network camera, the Axis 200. Since that first release, which seemed to many at the time an unnecessary, far-fetched solution, the IP market has grown in leaps and bounds. Analog still rules the coop, but IP is steadily gaining. Some analysts predict network cameras will surpass analog by 2008.
