In the increasingly connected and online world, security is a constantly moving target. Which is why those entrusted with the critical task of safeguarding enterprise data assets—the CISOs—must not only be nimbler than the cyber attackers but also be able to take proactive measures. Express Security Strategist Awards recognize and honor CISOs that display exemplary strategic skills in the realm of information security.

As the name suggests, Express Security Strategist Awards are given away to Indian enterprises or Indian subsidiaries of MNCs that demonstrate comprehensive implementation of enterprise security technologies for distinct business benefit. This includes deploying a completely new solution or an innovative use of an existing enterprise security technology to gain a competitive edge.

Nominations from Indian enterprises are sought for the Express Security Strategist Awards. The nominations will be shortlisted, reviewed, and judged by a panel of Editors from the Express Computer team, and the winners will be felicitated at Technology Senate, Pune, 7-8 June 2018.
