For 2023 we have started a new initiative among our community activities in Switzerland and gathered together the most foresightful and expert jury who will be responsible for deciding the winners of the first-ever Swiss CISO Awards.
The Swiss CISO Awards are not only a key part of the high-quality content of the Global Cyber Conference, but they are also being awarded to recognize and honor the outstanding achievements of leading CISOs who have committed their careers to enhance the information security of their respective companies or organizations. It is important for a broader audience to start to understand that cybersecurity must be built within companies from a very early stage. Therefore, CISOs must build alliances with many non-tech / non-cyber / non-security people and must rely on their support.
for the outstanding performance in ICT and cyber security posture of the company in general.
for the great impact on the digitalisation strategy and mindset of a company.
for the biggest impact on the cyber security awareness and culture of a company.
for the most effective impact on the diversity and inclusion of a security team.
for a young talent, with an innovative mindset and great potential to have an impact in the near future.
