You asked and we listened.  We have new award categories now covering InfoSec People, Products and Services.  We’re offering even more coverage during RSA Conference 2018 when we distribute our awards and inform local and national media about the innovative winners.  Winners will stand out from the noise and the crowd. We’re even providing optional company profile articles written by our staff about your company, if you win.  These make great marketing and sales tools with additional credibility for winners.  We have even more marketing programs to help you get the buzz you deserve – whether it is sponsorship of the Awards page which receives at least 100,000 visits per month from IT professionals or through ongoing double-opt-in email blasts to our thousands of monthly readers of our eMagazines.

All winners will be published in the annual Cyber Defense Magazine print edition and will have their award personally delivered to their booth by CDM during the RSA Conference 2018.

The Judging Panel: CISSP, FMDHS, CEH, certified security professionals who will be voting based on their independent reviews of the products/services which have been submitted.
