Dr. Stephen Flynn Joins Dowley Security Systems

Leading Homeland Security Expert to Serve as New Senior Security Advisor

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - October 19, 2010) -  Dowley Security Systems, the leading global security solutions integrator, is pleased to announce that Dr. Stephen Flynn has joined Dowley as Senior Security Advisor. Dr. Flynn is a veteran national security executive, author, and thinker whose extensive experience includes his current role as President of the Center for National Policy. He also serves as a member of the blue-ribbon Bipartisan National Security Preparedness Group, co-chaired by former 9/11 Commission chairs, Gov. Tom Kean and Congressman Lee Hamilton, which makes recommendations to Congress and the Obama Administration on non-partisan solutions for enhancing national and homeland security. Dr. Flynn spent a decade as a senior fellow for National Security Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, and served as the lead policy advisor on homeland security for the presidential transition team after the election of President Barack Obama.

"I am delighted to be joining Dowley Security Systems," said Dr. Flynn. "It is a visionary company with superb leaders and managers who understand that when you harness the right systems and expertise, security becomes a smart investment that improves operations, bolsters productivity, and strengthens enterprise resilience. CEO James Brown and the Dowley team are on the cutting-edge in addressing one of the most critical challenges of our time -- safeguarding our nation's high-risk facilities. Whether you are talking about the security of refineries, power plants, airports, or stadiums, so much work remains to be done."

The addition of Dr. Flynn supports Dowley's strategic focus on the protection of critical infrastructure assets around the globe. These systems include chemical and refining facilities; public safety and emergency services, financial and banking services; and the water, telecommunications, energy, transportation sectors. Given the ongoing danger arising from terrorism, natural disasters, and periodic large-scale accidents, infrastructure is increasingly exposed to disruptive risk.

"Dowley's strategic focus is on critical infrastructure and with Dr. Flynn's background and experience, we now have the leading expert on these issues as an advisor for our clients, further establishing Dowley as the thought leader in security both nationally and globally. Dr. Flynn will be an invaluable asset for our customers who recognize the importance of protecting their critical assets," said James F. Brown, Chief Executive Officer of Dowley. "We are very excited to have Dr. Flynn as a member of the Dowley team."
