Arizona InfraGard Coordinator Receives High Recognition for 2011 Effort

At the 2011 InfraGard National Congress in Nashville, FBI Special Agent Anthony Farinacci, and Department of Homeland Security Protective Security Advisor, Christine Figueroa, were individually awarded the top honors nationwide, providing Arizona and these individuals with the pride they deserve and have consistently worked hard to earn. SA Anthony Farinacci was awarded the InfraGard National 2012 Coordinator of the Year Award, and PSA Christine Figueroa was awarded the InfraGard National 2012 Protective Security Advisor of the Year Award. Given strong competition, the differentiating factor was our engaged membership in Arizona reflecting successful collaboration and cooperation that results in effective bi-directional communication and cooperation, delivering actionable intelligence to address threats. I can share with you my own pride, in witnessing on behalf of our membership and Arizona Anthony and Christine's acceptance of these awards. The applause of the national congress delegates was sincere and told the whole story. This applause and both of these awards directly reflect our consistent statewide focus on collaboration and cooperation across and among all of the critical infrastructure sectors that have been the hallmark underlining Anthony and Christine's individual performance.
