CSO50 Awards logo

The CSO50 Awards recognizes 50 organizations for security projects and initiatives that demonstrate outstanding business value and thought leadership. The awards are scored according to a uniform set of criteria by a panel of judges that includes security leaders, industry experts, and academics. This is an opportunity to share with your peers the risk and security innovations that led the way to greater success for your organization. Because the award is given to companies rather than individuals, it’s an honor that everyone on your staff can take pride in.

Submissions Open January 2022

The CSO Hall of Fame recognizes leaders who have made significant contributions to the advancement of information risk management and security. The CSO Hall of Fame inductees are selected by the editors of CSO and its advisors and executives. Because of the connected nature of today’s business environments, managing the operational risk of any single organization is of vital importance. The CSO Hall of Fame inductees exemplify the qualities of leadership and excellence and, by their example, contribute to the improvement of security across all organizations.
