SC Awards 2007 – Time to be counted


More than 9,000 SC Magazine readers voted in SC Magazine's Reader Trust Awards, while a panel of 17 judges comprising various industry experts evaluated entries and chose finalists in the Professional and Excellence Awards categories. The panel is co-chaired by Dave Cullinane, formerly of Washington Mutual, who recently accepted the CISO post at eBay, and Greg Bell, partner with KPMG's Risk Advisory Services, alongside SC Editor-in-Chief Illena Armstrong.

It is during the upcoming RSA Conference 2007, set for Feb. 5-9, 2007, that winners of each of the categories will be announced. The annual black-tie SC Awards Gala, held Tuesday evening, Feb. 6, at the Hilton San Francisco, will celebrate their achievements.
