If I win what do I get?
The Visionary Security Vendor wins a virtual Security Shark Tank – a value of $6500 – which has CISOs from the Board of Judges take part in a rapid-fire back and forth Q&A with the winner so their CISO peers and prospects can hear what they do, how they do it differently and why they were selected.
Winners of the Premier Security Company, Start-up Security Company, COVID-19 Pivot Award and Partner in Success Award each receive a podcast with a CISO judge to discuss what they do and how they do it differently.
All winners receive promotion in a press release, on Security Current and in the exclusive CISOs Connect Community as well as across social media. The winners also receive a graphic to use to promote their win.
