Philip Niedermair, NCG's Chair of the Board of Advisors, Inducted into the Military Cyber Professionals Association's (MCPA) Order of Thor
STERLING, Va., July 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- National Cyber Group (NCG) announced Philip Niedermair, Chair of the Board of Advisors and Member of the Board, Senior Advisor to the US Cyberspace Solarium Commission, was inducted into the Military Cyber Professionals Association's (MCPA) Order of Thor. This prestigious award was presented to Mr. Philip Niedermair in honor of his contributions in supporting the overall National Cyber Mission with the US Cyberspace Solarium Commission, his work in cybersecurity education, and preparing the next generation of cyber professionals.
During the award presentation on July 21, 2022, Chris Cleary, Principal Cyber Advisor to the Department of the Navy, commended Mr. Niedermair for his contributions over the last decade in supporting the Cyber Mission in Education, working to solve the massive cybersecurity job gap, and for bringing diverse groups together to address our nation's overall cyber challenge.
Mr. Niedermair commented, "I am deeply honored by the recognition, most notably when you look at the caliber of people and the accomplishments of past recipients, as with all commendations of this type, I could not have achieved this without the help of many people, particularly Dick Schaeffer, Lt. Gen. Rhett Hernandez (ret.), RADM Mark Montgomery (ret.) LTC John Quigg (ret.), and Peter Watts."
"This award is well-earned as Philip has worked relentlessly over the past four years towards the formation of NCG to execute the daunting mission of building an elite cybersecurity corps who can hit the gound running day one on the job," said David Moon, National Cyber Group's CEO.
The prestigious Order of Thor Medal recognizes great service and contributions to the American military cyber community. The Order of Thor is named for the mythological warrior who battles beyond the clouds – appropriate, considering the cloud is a widely recognized symbol of cyberspace. Being inducted into the Order of Thor is a recognition of members of the military community who have made considerable contributions and embody the Military Cyber Professionals Association's (MCPA) values of loyalty, duty, and excellence. Inductees are presented a medal symbolizing the appreciation on behalf of the American military cyber profession.
The MCPA is a non-profit organization and counts service members, retirees, and civilians in the cyber community among its members. Learn more: https://milcyber.org
