The CSO Hall of Fame was created to spotlight outstanding leaders who have significantly contributed to the advancement of information risk management and security. Selected by the editors of CSO, its advisors and executives, the individuals in this inaugural class of the CSO Hall of Fame exemplify leadership excellence and, by their example, contribute to the improvement of security across all organizations.

Honorees will be recognized at the CSO50 Conference + Awards taking place April 27 - 29, 2020 at the JW Marriott Camelback Inn Resort in Scottsdale, AZ. The annual conference draws 200+ security decision-makers for three days of peer interaction, education and engagement, and culminates in an awards ceremony recognizing the winners of our annual CSO50 awards and Hall of Fame inductees. Attendees travel from across the U.S. to learn from industry experts and top vendors as they seek out information on security solutions and best practices.
