Digital Silence, a Convergent DS company, Among Stevie Award Winners for Veteran-Owned Business of the Year

Digital Silence, a Convergent DS company, has been honored as a Veteran-Owned Business of the Year in the 22nd Annual American Business Awards, the nation’s premier business awards program.

Led by CEO Justin Whitehead, Digital Silence won the Bronze-level Stevie Award, nicknamed for the Greek word meaning “crowned.” More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes were submitted in the ABAs this year and more than 300 professionals worldwide participated in the judging. 

Among the comments from judges, Digital Silence was praised for its “unique approach and culture” that “resonates with the long term security needs of many businesses.”

A decorated combat veteran, Justin Whitehead started Digital Silence as an employee-owned company focused on providing exceptional security consulting services for clients seeking to ensure their products and processes are safe and secure for their customers. Using the knowledge, loyalty, and leadership skills he gained as a U.S. Army Airborne Infantryman, he leads, inspires, and empowers the Digital Silence team to deliver best-in-class solutions with unsurpassed client care. 

Last year, Justin was among the winners of the Denver Business Journal’s Most Admired CEO award, and under his leadership, Digital Silence’s work and team have earned consistent recognition across the cybersecurity industry and in their community, including three Global InfoSec Awards presented by Cyber Defense Magazine and two Cybersecurity Excellence Awards in 2024.

Digital Silence has joined forces over the last year with Convergent Risks, a leading provider of site, cloud, and application security assessments, penetration testing, vulnerability management, SOC2 & ISO Readiness, and privacy compliance for the media and entertainment sector. The two companies recently announced a merger deal to become Convergent DS.
