Information Security Award 2018-08-20T09:13:19+00:00

The Peer Award for Excellence in Information Security celebrates innovation and success, and it does so in a way that distinguishes it from most awards for business in a number of key ways.

 

The Peer Awards are inspirational because finalists review each other’s innovative entries; they are open and democratic in that it is the finalists themselves that are the judges; they are easy to enter as submission and judging are online (which is also why they are global) and as there is no fixed format or length for your entry; they offer exposure in the media but also confidentiality if you prefer; entry is low-risk and the awards ceremony is a celebration of all finalists attending.

 

The Information Security Peer Awards (presented for their first year in association with Business Reporter’s TEISS) celebrate innovation in implementing an effective infosec strategy.


Information Security Award Categories

Associate your entries with one or more of these award categories, adjusting the focus of each as you like.


Deadlines

The deadlines for 2019 will be announced later this year


Fees

When you register you say the number of entries you wish to submit for each of the awards, which you can add to later.

Please enquire about our special Information Security Company Category in your organisation’s name that can guarantee to celebrate your employees (or clients if you are a supplier) exclusively at the Peer Awards Ceremony (or at the TEISS Ceremony if you prefer), for their innovative work in Information Security. Alternatively our Enterprise Award could be a better fit if you have entries from our other awards in addition to Information Security, would like your award to focus on a particular strength of your organisation, and would welcome having your own table for ten at the Peer Awards Ceremony.


Who can Enter

Entries are invited from internal departments (IT and Security for instance) and from suppliers of relevant products and services.

Our one proviso is that the entry not be self-promotional, so that the nominated entries (which are basically case studies) can be presented to fellow professionals (the judges) untarnished by any sales agenda.

Entries should focus on one or more internal initiatives, all of which help present an innovative idea or approach. They can all have taken place within one client organisation, or across a number. An involved supplier can be acknowledged alongside the organisation in whose name the entry is submitted. Alternatively the entry can be in the supplier’s name, in the form of a case study championed by at least one end-user organisation.


Become a Finalist, Win an Award

It is very easy to submit entries to the Peer Awards, and we are keen to nominate any (non-promotional) entry that is clearly expressed, shows an impact in its target community, is doing something different and is likely to interest fellow infoSec practitioners (that is the other finalists and TEISS Conference attendees, who are also the judges).


The Peer Awards Ceremony

The Information Security Awards Ceremony is planned to take place at the TEISS Summer Party in June 2018. Details will be announced nearer the time. It is here that all the Information Security finalists are acknowledged and the winners announced and celebrated.

The Peer Awards Ceremony planned for later in June 2018 will again be a champagne afternoon cream tea at a prestigious Central London venue. It is here that all the overall Peer Awards winners (for sectors, regions and judging criteria) are announced and celebrated.

New this year is the opportunity to celebrate being a finalist (with a certificate and a photo) at the Awards Ceremony even if your entry is not a winner, and (especially with our international clients in mind) the opportunity (simply by submitting three or more nominated entries) to be guaranteed acknowledgement and success at the awards ceremony.


Peer Review (Judging)

All finalists and 2018 TEISS Conference attendees are invited to also be judges, and we anticipate that it will also be possible to register just as a judge without submitting any entries, to read, review and rate the nominated entries of interest, asking questions of the other finalists for further information and greater clarity where you wish. You may adjust your ratings later with the benefit of hindsight.


Sponsorship

Our exciting Enterprise Award provides a unique way for your company to sponsor a prestigious award, to participate with your own client entries and be sure that at least one of these will be celebrated at the Peer Awards Ceremony, all without compromising the integrity of the award. This enables your brand to be prominently associated with innovation and excellence at the Peer Awards and across our media coverage, at the Peer Awards Ceremony and at the Winners Summit, all for the price of half a dozen nominated entries and a table at the Peer Awards Ceremony.
