Nominate for (ISC)2’s Information Security Leadership Awards

(ISC)2’s EMEA Information Security Leadership Awards (ISLA) is the perfect opportunity to recognise the excellence and hard work of information security professionals - and nominations are now open!

The (ISC)2 EMEA ISLA awards are unique in that they provide the cyber security community with an opportunity to acknowledge professionals that have distinguished themselves under specific projects, programmes and initiatives.


Your nominee could be a well-known figure, a standout leader or even an unsung peer of yours working tirelessly in the background.
  
Nominations are open until the 12th of July 2017, midnight BST and are open to all professionals in information, cyber, software or infrastructure security in the EMEA region.

You can submit your nominations here.

Award Categories:
You can nominate individuals (both (ISC)2 members and non-members) in the following four categories:



Senior Information Security Professional: This goes to someone that has significantly contributed to the enhancement of the information security workforce by demonstrating a leadership role in any security workforce improvement initiative, program or project. Ideally, this nomination should have at least five years of experience in an information security role.  

Information Security Practitioner: This award acknowledges an individual that has distinguished themselves by implementing and/or managing the implementation of a component of a security programme. Nominations typically should have at least three years of experience in an information security role.

Up-and-Coming Information Security Professional: This award recognises a person who is a new, rising star in the information security field. The project, improvement or initiative may not relate to leadership and instead may relate to their current position or education.

Woman Information Security Professional: This will be awarded to a female who has contributed to women’s representation in the profession and raised awareness to encourage vocations among women. The ideal nomination should have at least three years of relevant industry experience.

Who’s the judge?
Submissions will be judged by members of the Europe, Middle East and Africa Advisory Council (EAC) and will consist of the following industry leaders:
  • Yves Le Roux, CISSP, CISM: Co-chair of the (ISC)2 EMEA Advisory Council 
  • Dr. Yiannis Pavlosoglou, PhD, CISSP: Strategic Change Manager for Operational Resilience at UBS.

  • Paco Hope, CISSP, CSSLP: Recognised expert in the field of software security. He is the author of two security books, a frequent conference speaker and a regular online author 

Award Ceremony:
Awards will be hosted at the (ISC)2 Secure Summit in London in December. This will also act as the perfect opportunity to bring together our community and celebrate the achievements and commitment to excellence that we all continue to strive for.

Shortlisted nominees from different countries will be sponsored to attend the event.
