Welcome to the inaugural CSO30 in ASEAN - recognising the top 30 leading cyber security executives driving innovation, strengthening resiliency and influencing industry change.
Reflective of IDG’s increased commitment to the region, CSO30 is aligned to a global awards program and viewed as a mark of excellence within the cyber security industry.
The awards program recognises the leading individuals and organisations delivering security projects and initiatives which demonstrate outstanding business value and innovation. Successful CISOs 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.
CSO30 is an important part of the CSO brand portfolio at IDG, operating as the engine which forms and drives the CSO community. Built from our deep editorial involvement within this community, CSO is viewed as the trusted source to bring together leading cyber security executives to connect and collaborate.
We look forward to you joining us for CSO30 in 2021.
