SC Magazine Awards US, which honors the professionals, companies and products that help thwart the security threats of today’s corporate world, is accepting nominations for the 15th annual SC Awards US. The deadline for submissions, August 26, is around the corner. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards gala event at RSA in San Francisco on February 28, 2011.
Each year, SC Magazine honors the achievements of the security professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities and the fervent work of government, commercial and non profits.
SC Awards US Categories
Security professionals have the opportunity to now enter 33 categories grouped under three major themes: Readers Trust Awards, Excellence Awards, and Professional Awards, as chosen by their peers and a panel of industry experts. This year, vendors have three new opportunities for recognition, as SC Magazine added Best Cloud Computing Security, Best Fraud Prevention Solution and Best NAC Product
to the SC Awards line-up.
Vendors and service providers who offer a prod¬uct and/or service for the commercial, government, educational, nonprofit or other industries can enter the Reader Trust and Excellence categories. All of these categories relate to products, services and/or informa¬tion security companies. Information security professionals from end-user companies can enter into the Professional categories, which honor teams and CSOs/CISOs.
“Now in its 15th year, the SC Magazine Awards is hailed as one of the most prominent global awards in the IT security industry,” said Illena Armstrong, editor-in-chief, SC Magazine.”At this year’s SC Awards gala, we will be celebrating the brave men and women battling a new era of cyber crime, where stealthy and persistent threats are stealing the daily headlines. We look forward to hearing the stories of innovation and victory, as we encounter a new frontier of corporate security threats designed to steal the heart of an organization, data.”
