The Information Security Peer Awards 2018
3 January 2018 |
TEISS, the most influential cyber security summit in the industry’s event calendar has added another feather to its multi-plumed hat with the launch of the Information Security Peer Awards for 2018.
With a range of categories across cyber security, the awards promise to be one of the most comprehensive in the field.
Entries are now open and invited from internal departments (IT and Security for instance) and from suppliers of relevant products and services, in the form of case studies.
The Peer Awards are different to other awards across businesses because finalists review each other’s innovative entries, judging is online and there is no fixed format or length for entry.
All finalists and 2018 TEISS Conference attendees are invited to also be judges- to read, review and rate the nominated entries of interest. Winners will be announced at the TEISS Summer Party in June 2018.
Interested? Here are the categories that businesses can put themselves forward to be judged for excellence and innovation.
