Who Should Enter ‘Best in Information Security (Infosec)?’

This award honors organizations, professionals, and technologies that demonstrate excellence in information security (Infosec) practices, strategies, and solutions, playing a pivotal role in ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data.

Information security has become a top priority for organizations across all industries, as cyber threats continue to evolve in sophistication and frequency. From malicious actors seeking to exploit vulnerabilities for financial gain to nation-state actors engaged in cyber espionage, the risks to data security are ever-present and require proactive measures to mitigate.

Nominees exhibit exceptional dedication, expertise, and innovation in the field of information security, implementing robust security measures, adopting best practices, and leveraging advanced technologies to safeguard digital assets and protect against cyber threats.

The judging panel will be very keen to see evidence of any or all of the following in your submission:

  • Security Strategy and Governance: The effectiveness of the organization’s security strategy and governance framework is a key criterion for evaluation. The organization’s approach to defining and enforcing security policies, procedures, and standards, as well as its commitment to compliance with regulatory requirements and industry standards.
  • Data Protection and Privacy: Data protection and privacy are paramount in information security, given the sensitive nature of personal and business data. The organization’s measures for encrypting data, implementing access controls, and ensuring compliance with data protection regulations such as GDPR, HIPAA, and CCPA will be of interest.
  • Security Awareness and Training: The organization’s efforts in promoting security awareness and providing training to employees are critical for fostering a culture of security and reducing the risk of human error.
  • Threat Detection and Incident Response: The organization’s capabilities in threat detection and incident response are essential for effectively identifying and mitigating cyber threats in real-time. Judges will evaluate the organization’s tools, processes, and procedures for monitoring networks, detecting anomalies, and responding to security incidents promptly and effectively.

The winning entry will exemplify exceptional dedication, expertise, and innovation in information security, demonstrating a holistic approach to safeguarding digital assets, protecting sensitive data, and mitigating cyber threats effectively.

We also welcome submissions from organizations that provide solutions and technologies that support organizations in their Infosec efforts.
