woman to receive the award from the American
Society of Industrial Security.

Alanood Al-Rabiah, group leader of Operational Excellence and Compliance in Saudi Aramco’s Industrial Security Support Department, recently received the Karen Marquez Memorial Honors women in security award.

The American Society of Industrial Security (ASIS) presented Al-Rabiah with the award during a ceremony in Florida, U.S. The award is given to security professionals who have consistently worked for the betterment of the security industry.

One of four women to receive the award in 2016, she is also the first Arab woman to ever receive the award. This impressive achievement was based on the evaluation of significant contributions Al-Rabiah made to the advancement of the security profession.

“I would like to thank my management in Saudi Aramco who have recommended me for this honor and will take this opportunity to support, promote and inspire other women working in the profession,” Al-Rabiah said. “It gives me great pleasure to see not only Saudi Aramco but also Saudi women being recognized for their boundless achievements.”

Jaber Al-Suhaimi, acting manager of the Industrial Security Support Department, commended Al-Rabiah, saying: “I praise Alanood for her fruitful contribution in industrial security. Her efforts have made her a role model in the security profession, inspiring women empowerment and development worldwide.”
