This prestigious award recognizes leaders in both the public and private sectors, honoring their efforts to protect vital networks, personal information, and critical infrastructure to protect citizens and safeguard American networks.

As a founding member of StateRAMP, a nonprofit that aims to create a standardized approach to cybersecurity for State and Local governments, Bielawski was instrumental in bringing together a Steering Committee of thought leaders to ensure long-term organizational success.

I’m truly proud of the work StateRAMP has achieved since its founding and I look forward to StateRAMP continuing to evolve and serve government and private sector leaders as new challenges and opportunities emerge.”

Bielawski has extensive experience in government programs, in IT thought leadership, and most passionately, in serving people. His focus on service continues through his commitment to StateRAMP’s ongoing involvement to make the digital landscape a safer, more secure place.
