YRC Worldwide Named to Security Magazine’s 2014 “Security 500”

YRC Worldwide (NASDAQ: YRCW) was named number one in the transportation category for Security magazine’s 2014 “Security 500” list. For the second year in a row, this top spot has been claimed by YRC Worldwide—a company dedicated to industry best practices and invested in innovative security approaches.

The “Security 500” list, released in the November 2014 edition of the magazine, tracks companies and institutions in 17 vertical markets for the purpose of creating a reliable benchmarking program among security organizations.  Rankings are based on a number of factors, including security spending, the number of security officers per employee and per facility, innovative security strategies and peer/customer feedback.

“Receiving this recognition from one of the top security publications in the world is quite an honor,” said Wayne “Butch” Day, chief security officer for YRC Worldwide. “I am personally thankful for the professional men and women who comprise our Corporate Security Department and their dedication to our companies and our customers. Our security team strives daily to instill in all of our employees the understanding that ‘Security is Everyone’s Responsibility.’”
