Sean Toolan Awarded with National Honors

PHILADELPHIA, PA, October 22, 2022

Sean Toolan has been honored with the Annual Semper Fidelis Award from the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation for 2022!

Sean, the VP of Cyber Governance Risk and Compliance at Layer 8 Security, not only serves as a Major in the Marine Corps Reserves, but is also very active in several non-profits benefiting veterans, their families, and the community at large.

“It’s humbling to accept this award. The spirit of Semper Fidelis, always faithful, has been exuded by my friends and family and calling attention to them is an honor,” stated Sean. “It fills me with joy knowing it also shines a spotlight onto the charitable organizations I have been supporting. I’m grateful for the recognition by the MCLEF and the city of Philadelphia.”

“Sean spends a lot of time not just shaping his own outstanding career, but always looking around to see where else he can make an impact for veterans, their families and the community of Philadelphia,” said Jeff Lipson, CEO of Layer 8 Security. “I’m elated, but not surprised, that he won this years’ award.”

The black-tie gala was attended by hundreds on Saturday October 22 at the Rivers Casino in downtown Philadelphia with guest speakers General David Berger, Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, and John McNesby, President of the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police.
