The Roy A. Bordes Excellence in Security Scholarship Award

 

Roy A. Bordes



Many of us in the security industry have known and respected Roy for many years. He was a champion of progressive security techniques, and possessed the unique ability to embrace the things that worked, while steering clear of the passing fads.On February 12th 2008, the security world lost a significant contributor with the passing of Roy Bordes, a trusted friend and colleague.All of us at ATAB are deeply touched by his passing, and will miss his highly valued guidance, council and incite that was so essential during our early years.The success of our organization is epitomized by professionals like Roy.

After a successful tour in the U.S. Navy, Roy's inquisitive mind and logical thinking naturally led him to law enforcement, where he served with the U.S. Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations. Over the years, he was an investigator, agent, security professional, terrorism expert, teacher, philosopher, mentor, and to all those that knew him, a trusted friend.

In 1978, Roy founded The Bordes Group in Orlando, Florida.Throughout the years, other offices were established in South Carolina, Virginia, and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The company is a professional security-consulting firm providing services to a wide variety of clients including, but not limited to, Fortune 50 firms, military, government and industrial facilities. The Bordes group specializes in the design of integrated electronic security systems. Many incorporate technologies related to access control, biometrics, closed-circuit television, communications, and perimeter protection. During his tenure, his involvement included sensitive security projects from homeland security to the design of complex and specialized security screening techniques.

For years Roy was recognized as a leading security professional and has been sought after by organizations such as Time magazine, the Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, Business Week, the Associated Press, Washington Post, and the Orlando Sentinel for his opinion and insights on Security and Terrorism. He also was interviewed on several television networks including FOX, MSNBC, and the ABC World News Tonight with the late Peter Jennings.

In keeping with Roy's dedication to teach and mentor new security professionals, ATAB initiated an annual scholarship in his name for the advancement of security professionals. Each year ATAB awards a scholarship in the name of Roy to an outstanding and qualified individual who demonstrates the forward thinking qualities consistently demonstrated by Roy Bordes. The scholarship includes ATAB membership, the cost of ATAB training and certification of his/her choice, and attendance at ATAB and affiliate training activities for a full year. Candidates must submit a presentation in MS-Power Point or a White Paper on a security or terrorism related topic. The submission will be evaluated by the ATAB Awards Committee judged by the ATAB Board of Directors for its professional content and merit. The nomination must include a short paper characterizing the individual as a professional with the same progressive nature, vision and energy as that demonstrated by our friend and colleague Roy Bordes.
