Security industry loses a stand out individual
Doug Hendricks, security manager at Sun Microsystems, passed away a few weeks ago.
Doug started his security career working for a security integrator and worked his way to the end-user side of the business over a 27 year period. He started his security career working for CMC in San Jose as a Project Manager on the Lockheed Space and Missile access control project.
CMC was acquired by JWP and Doug transferred to JWP’s Bay Area office where he ran numerous large projects including the BART CCTV project and the Pelican Bay State Prison CCTV project. He had responsibility for engineering and managing the installation of the CCTV, intercom, guard panic and MATV systems.
In 1991, Doug joined Integrated Security Control Systems (ISCS). He was project manager for the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco project, where his CCTV design became the standard for many Federal Reserve Banks. Doug then managed a large CCTV installation at Silicon Graphics Corporation. As ISCS’s security contract for Sun Microsystems grew Doug became the Project Manager at Sun’s Bay Area facilities and then became ISCS’s Support Services Manager at Sun Microsystems.
Doug was offered and accepted the position of Manager of Security Systems working directly for Sun Microsystems. In this role he managed Sun’s global access control systems and assisted with developing the current security systems standards, the “Alarm Reduction Program”, the executive protection program, and the “One Badge” project for global access. His latest project, which he engineered and managed, was the access control system conversion from GE/Infographic Systems to GE/CASI Picture Perfect 4.0 System for all Sun's locations globally.
We will miss Doug.
