(ISC)² Global Awards Program

Since 2004, (ISC)² has been recognizing the ongoing commitment of individuals who are leading the way and making a difference in this ever evolving industry, honoring their tireless efforts and standards of excellence in the field of information security. A nominations judging committee comprised of ten to twelve senior information security experts will review all submissions and select finalists for each category.  All qualified nominees and finalists are honored during an Awards ceremony each year.

The Americas Information Security Leadership Awards (AM-ISLA) is awarded annually in the following categories:

  • Senior Information Security Professional (examples include: CSO, CISO, information security manager or senior security manager with significant information security management responsibilities) who has significantly contributed to the enhancement of the information security workforce by demonstrating a leadership role in any information security workforce improvement initiative, program or project. Candidates in this category typically should have at least five years of work experience directly related to information security.
     
  • Information Security Practitioner who has distinguished him/herself for implementing and/or managing the implementation of a component of a security program (examples include: managing a security awareness and training program, conducting difficult, complex security evaluations, etc.) Candidates in this category typically should have at least three years of work experience directly related to information security.
     
  • Up-and-Coming Information Security Professional who is a new, rising star in the information security field. The project, improvement or initiative may not relate to leadership as with the other categories, but rather something that relates to their current position or educational work (e.g., university research project, implemented emerging technology, outstanding work in security operations).
  • Community Awareness  - A project, initiative or program represented by information or non-information  security personnel who have significantly contributed to building or broadening security awareness in the local or information security community within the last 12 months.
