The finalists will make their pitch to a judging panel at the 2009 SC World Congress. Each finalist will have five minutes to make their pitch and will be obligated to answer follow-up questions from the panel after their presentation. Each will then be awarded a score based on a set of pre-defined criteria.
The top five innovators from the Security Innovators Throwdown will then be featured in a special section of SC Magazine after the SC World Congress. The special section will discuss the evolution of the information security market and the innovators' places in it. The ultimate goal is to help identify and foster notable cybersecurity technologies and services.
The Security Innovators Throwdown will open for two hours each day of the SC World Congress on the trade show floor.
