WHY NOMINATE?

The CSO50 Award is a recognized mark of risk and security excellence. The award is given to organizations/companies rather than individuals, making it an honor in which everyone on your security team can take pride. It is your opportunity to share with your peers the risk and security innovations that led the way to greater success for your organization. Of course, we know some details must be held confidential – and we provide the way for you to do that.

Executives and managers from honored organizations will be recognized among their peers and colleagues at the 2020 CSO50 Conference + Awards. Each winning organization will receive complimentary conference passes.

In addition to being recognized as a security leader, for all the team and new hire benefits that provides, being honored as a CSO50 company will bring your executives unparalleled access to peers and true experts at our CSO50 conference. The conference is open to an exclusive group of security and IT practitioners and sponsors.
