The 2009 SC Awards gala was an occasion to gather with security colleagues and to toast 31 winners.


SC Magazine paid tribute to leading security vendors and professionals at its 12th annual SC Awards U.S. gala on April 21.

“The most important constant has been the perse­verance offered by so many in the information secu­rity community,” says Dan Lohrmann, CISO of the state of Michigan and one of the co-chairs of the judging panel for the event. “Through dedication to excellence, integrity, customer service and ‘outside the box' thinking, these corporations, teams and individuals offer a better way.”
