U.S. GISLA®

Recognizing Federal Information Security Leaders

Now in its 11th year, the (ISC)² Government Information Security Leadership Awards (GISLAs) program has been recognizing the ongoing commitment of individuals whose initiatives in the areas of  technology, process/policy or community awareness have led to significant improvements in the security posture of a department, agency or the entire federal government.

This year, all qualified nominees will be honored during a Gala Dinner Ceremony in the Washington D.C. area on Tuesday, June 3, 2014. The GISLA Gala has come to be recognized as a premier event which brings together information security decision makers from within the federal government. Drawing from over 30 agencies and the government contractor community, the event welcomes 120-plus senior level attendees in influential positions, presenting a superior networking opportunity. Nominations are accepted in the following categories:

  • Workforce Improvement - An individual or team of senior U.S. federal information security manager(s) (examples include CISO, Deputy CISO, Information Security Manager, etc.) who have significantly contributed to the enhancement of the information security workforce by demonstrating a leadership role in any information security workforce improvement initiative, program or project, on either a government-wide or agency-specific basis within the last 12 months.
