Global Achievement Awards Review Committee

ISC2 recognizes individuals whose excellence, leadership and volunteer efforts have significantly advanced the cybersecurity industry and contributed to our vision of inspiring a safe and secure cyber world.


The committee is charged with selecting the award recipients for the APAC, EMEA, Latin and North America regions. Committee members will abide by ISC2’s Conflict of Interest Policy, program policies, procedures and guidelines. In partnership with staff, the committee works to ensure that the program is superior in all respects, recognizes all constituents, and fosters a global network of individuals in the cybersecurity and information technology industry who epitomize excellence in their work. The members of the Awards Committee will promote excellence and transparency, allowing broad input and recognition beyond the awards, promoting diversity and equity so that the awards are sufficiently representative of underrepresented groups.
