Throughout the day, SC Magazine will be announcing the finalists from each of its 32 award categories. Last but certainly not least are the Professional categories.
CSO of the Year
Contenders should include those who work for end-user companies only. No vendor CSOs will be considered. Nominees are the cream of the crop, having spearheaded a viable IT security program, gained the support of their company's executive leaders, as well as their colleagues, and helped – through their indefatigable efforts – to propel the CISO/CSO position to a footing of influence within their organization and the corporate world as a whole. Specific projects and undertakings, as well as over-arching security programs to propel these various goals, should be noted. Nominees should be prepared to answer further questions during the judging process, offer at least two references, and be open to holding confidential interviews with members of the SC Magazine editorial team, if warranted.
Please note: Professionals who work for an IT security vendor, IT reseller or IT consultancy are not eligible for this category.
