The American Security Today online magazine is a publication focusing on threats to homeland security in the United States. It describes its area of interest as the “new and evolving homeland security threats at all levels, that have law enforcement, first responders and public safety personnel on the front lines of protecting our communities, cities and nation.” One of AST’s chief methods of showing the impact of companies on the homeland security sphere is the annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards. These awards are “the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program,” recognizing all facets of the security industry from physical barriers to cutting-edge cybersecurity to acknowledge their efforts to ensure the safety of US.
