CISO Choice Awards 2023 Submission Deadline Extended to October 15 Due to Popular Demand

Leading CISOs Select Winners Based on Real-world Experience

NEW YORK, Oct. 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — CISOs Connect, the leading global professional development and networking community for chief information security officers, has extended by popular demand the final deadline to apply for its esteemed CISO-selected vendor recognition program – the CISO Choice Awards.  

The new deadline is 11:59 PM Pacific Time on October 15, 2023. Applications are open to five business categories and 21 technical categories. Security solution providers worldwide are submitting their products or services for consideration.

The industry-recognized CISO Choice Awards are distinguished by a transparent process and criteria, and are judged by a pre-eminent board of international CISOs representing a range of industries. Their mission: to seek out the most innovative technologies available globally, many new many used by them in the real world in a competition that offers value for solution providers and security chiefs alike.

“For me, it’s a credibility associated with real-world CISOs,” said James Blair, Group Manager Technology & CISO at Todd Corporation in New Zealand. “It’s a transparent process. We have no skin in the game, and we’re doing it because we are passionate about cybersecurity.”

The awards offer vendors an unparalleled opportunity to get genuine input and recognition from an identified panel of industry experts, many of whom use the products put before them.

“With thousands of security vendors out there, finding the best solution for your organization’s needs is a formidable challenge,” said Angela Williams, UL Solutions SVP & CISO, said. “The CISO Choice Awards is an invaluable tool for cutting through the marketing noise and guiding our community toward those platforms that distinguish themselves.”

For security leaders, grappling with an increasingly challenging risk environment and thousands of security solutions, the awards are a chance to identify the most unique and innovative technologies out there.

“This is the most prestigious CISO judging panel I’ve ever seen,” said Jake Martens, Senior Vice President and CISO at Aristocrat and a member of the judging panel. “I would highly encourage vendors to apply as I think these awards hold more water than anything else out there.”
