Kassouf CIO awarded by FBI


Kassouf Principal and Chief Information Officer Russ Dorsey was recently honored with the FBI Director’s Community Leadership Award (DCLA). Russ was recognized for his efforts and achievements fostering outreach, education, and information sharing among the FBI, Department of Homeland Security, and other agencies and local organizations and businesses.

Russ joined the Kassouf team in 2014 as Information Technology Manager. He leads all information technology efforts at the firm with a crucial emphasis in cybersecurity awareness and training. He is also the President of the InfraGard Birmingham Members Alliance and a Board Member of TechBirmingham.

Since 1990, the FBI has recognized individuals and organizations whose achievements in the terrorism, crime, drug, gang, or violence prevention/education field had an exemplary impact on the community. Each year, the SAC of each FBI field office selects an individual or organization that has made a major contribution in these areas. Prior local recipients of the DCLA include the US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, The Wellhouse, and Children’s Policy Council of Jefferson County.

Congratulations Russ on this important achievement! Thank you for all you do to increase cybersecurity awareness and education not just at the firm, but throughout the community.
