The CSO50 Awards recognize 50 organizations (and the people within them) for their security project or initiative that demonstrates outstanding business value and thought leadership.
The CSO50 Awards are scored according to a uniform set of criteria by a panel of judges that includes security leaders, industry experts and academics. Awards will be presented at the CSO50 Conference + Awards.
Past winners include Aetna, Allstate, American Express, Comcast, Home Depot, Genpact, Prudential Financial, Xerox and many more.
The CSO Hall of Fame recognizes leaders who have made significant contributions to the advancement of information risk management and security. In its inaugural year, the CSO Hall of Fame inductees were 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.

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.
