Every year, Security Magazine hosts the following three Contests to highlight the best of the best when it comes to enterprise security. Click the links below to find out more about each contest and how to qualify.
Who are the best security leaders? Where are the best security programs? What leading trends and management ideas can we learn from the Security 500?
The Security 500 report showcases the security profession's leaders and their organizations. They are proven as both accomplished security executives and exceptional business leaders. This report includes the biggest challenges and targets for where billions of dollars will be invested to manage enterprise risk and improve enterprise security, as identified in the annual Security 500 Survey. Nominations will be accepted through July 31, 2020.
Each year, Security magazine honors top security executives who are positively impacting the security industry and their enterprise. In this annual report, learn how these security leaders climbed the ranks to provide an overall positive impact that their security projects, programs or departments have on their shareholders, organizations, colleagues and the general public. These leaders are nominated by their colleagues and associates. If you know someone (or are someone) who fits this bill – let us know by submitting a nomination form.
The security industry is changing, as is the profile of a successful security executive.

So who is breaking new ground in the security industry, making great strides forward in risk management while better supporting the enterprise as a whole? If you know someone (or are someone) who fits this bill – let us know! Send your recommendations and suggestions for future Profiles in Excellence here.
Security magazine and its partner for the Top Cybersecurity Leaders, (ISC)², is looking for enterprise information security executives, who have made and continue to make significant contributions in the cybersecurity space to their organizations and/or the enterprise-level information security profession. We want leaders that are not only mitigating risk within their organizations and furthering the profession of cybersecurity, but those that are innovative, forward-thinkers and thought-leaders in the industry. The goal of the program is to highlight cybersecurity professionals who are making a difference in their organization and/or in the industry as a whole. Entrants and nominees do not need to be members of (ISC)² to apply to this program.

We are looking for female enterprise security professionals that have demonstrated a positive influence on their peers, their departments, their organizations and/or the security industry as a whole.
