In today’s digital age, data is valuable. Organizations that have invested in information technology solutions to streamline operations, increase efficiencies and deliver new services are now confronting the need to securely manage and govern data, and the related risks and compliances.
And organizations are increasingly turning to Chief Information Security Officers (CSOs) to manage their information security issues, and provide strategic advice to the top management on managing risk and information governance.
NextCSO is India’s first and only program that recognizes the potential of experienced technology and business executives to take on the responsibility of leading the information security function. The awards program draws on the support and mentoring of India’s top executives and leaders involved in risk management and information security to select 30 exceptional individuals who have skills, talent and motivation to take on the top job.
The NextCSO 2022 award winners will be selected through a rigorous and comprehensive process that will evaluate professional achievements, and management and leadership skills that are essential to fulfil the challenging role of a CISO. The awards process invites aspirants to self-nominate for short-listing. All applicants will be required to undertake a series of activities designed to evaluate management and leadership skills.
The final selection will be made by a prestigious committee of information security leaders (the NextCSO jury).
