The second CSO30 ASEAN Awards represents a unique opportunity to create significant brand awareness and thought leadership among influential cybersecurity executives across Southeast Asia and Hong Kong.

This list is open to the top cyber security leader within an organisation who has overall responsibility and control of the cyber security vision and direction for the company.

The awards program recognises the leading individuals and organisations delivering security projects and initiatives which demonstrate outstanding business value and innovation. Successful CISOs, cyber executives and businesses will help overcome rising threat levels across Southeast Asia, tackling ongoing challenges in relation to increasingly sophisticated hackers and cyber talent shortages.

In addition to using security as a competitive differentiator, winners will also be acknowledged for assuming leadership positions in advancing the cyber conversation both internally and externally, documenting examples of industry best practice ASEAN-wide.

CSO30 will be judged aligned to a uniform set of criteria set by the CSO editorial board focusing on the core pillars of Business Value and Leadership - honouring transformational and inspiring CISOs at both in-country and regional levels in ASEAN. Submissions will be confidentially assessed by a panel of judges spanning security leaders, industry experts, analysts, and academics.

Nominations will open on Monday 30 May and will close on Friday 16 September.
